Behold, the half was not told.@1 Kings 10:7

Philip P. Bliss, 1870. The Half Was Never Told was suggested by reading notes by his dear friend and sometimes fellow laborer in Gospel work, James M. Brooks, of St. Louis, upon the Queen of Sheba’s visit to Solomon (Whittle, p. 144).

Philip P. Bliss (1838-1876)

Repeat the story o’er and o’er,
Of grace so full and free;
I love to hear it more and more,
Since grace has rescued me.
The half was never told,
The half was never told,
Of grace divine, so wonderful,
The half was never told.

Of peace I only knew the name,
Nor found my soul its rest
Until the sweet-voiced angel came
To soothe my weary breast.
The half was never told,
The half was never told,
Of peace divine, so wonderful,
The half was never told.

My highest place is lying low
At my Redeemer’s feet;
No real joy in life I know,
But in His service sweet.
The half was never told,
The half was never told,
Of joy divine, so wonderful,
The half was never told.

And oh, what rapture will it be
With all the host above,
To sing through all eternity
The wonders of His love.
The half was never told,
The half was never told,
Of love divine, so wonderful,
The half was never told.
