We tell it as we journey
T’ward the mansions built above,
The grand old story of salvation;
We sing it out with gladness,
In the melodies of love,
The grand old story of salvation.

Refrain

Ring it out (ring it out)
Ring it out (ring it out),
Ring, to every tribe and nation,
Ring it out (everywhere),
Ring it out (everywhere),
The grand old story of salvation.

His hand can lift the fallen,
And His blood can make them white,
The grand old story of salvation;
His love can pierce the darkness
With a never fading light,
The grand old story of salvation.

Refrain

We’ll sing it in the battle,
And its notes shall vict’ry be,
The grand old story of salvation;
We’ll sing it in our trials,
Till the passing shadows flee,
The grand old story of salvation.

Refrain

The angels look with wonder,
Yet their harps can never tell,
The grand old story of salvation;
His ransomed, clothed with beauty,
Shall the praise of Jesus swell,
The grand old story of salvation.
