Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

The Dear Old Story

When I think of Him who hath lov'd me so

Author: James Fraser
Published in 2 hymnals

Full Text

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]
