1 When I think of Him who hath lov'd me so,
Who left His home for this vale of woe,
Was cradled in a manger low,
O it's a precious old story!

Refrain:
O the dear old story, the precious story,
That fills my heart with grace and glory,
The sweetest song in heav'n I'll sing,
'Twill be the old, old story!

2 How He heal'd the sick and restor'd the blind,
And cheer'd the heart that in sorrow pin'd,
The tender Saviour, loving kind,
O it's a precious old story! [Refrain]

3 As wearied He sat at Samaria's well,
The story of love did sweetly tell,
His gracious words of mercy fell,
O it's a precious old story! [Refrain]

4 My griefs He carried, my sorrows bore,
His brow was scarr'd by the thorns He wore,
But now He reigns for evermore,
O it's a precious old story! [Refrain]
