Of all the sweet sto­ries
That ev­er were heard
In cot­tage or palace hall,
The story of Je­sus,
As told in God’s Word,
Is the ve­ry best sto­ry of all.


’Tis the ve­ry best story of all;
’Tis the ve­ry best sto­ry of all;
He has suf­fered for you,
Is the pro­mise true,
In the ve­ry best sto­ry of all.

He’s wait­ing to save
From the bond­age of sin,
When you in temp­ta­tion fall;
Oh, op­en your heart’s door,
And He will come in,
Says the ve­ry best sto­ry of all.


Oh, come to the Sav­ior
For re­fuge tonight;
Make haste to ob­ey His call;
Your soul shall be filled
With the hea­ven­ly light,
Of this ve­ry best sto­ry of all.
