Have you ever heard the story
Of the Babe of Bethlehem,
Who was worshipped by the angels
And the wise and holy men?
How He taught the learnèd doctors
In the temple far away?
O I’m glad, so glad, to tell you,
He is just the same today!

Refrain

He is just the same today,
He is just the same today,
Seeking those who are astray,
And saving souls along the way.
O I’m glad, so glad, to tell you,
He is just the same today.

Have you ever heard the story
How He walked upon the sea,
To His dear disciples tossing
On the waves of Galilee?
How the waves in angry motion
Quickly did His will obey?
O I’m glad, so glad, to tell you
He is just the same today!

Refrain

Have you ever heard of Jesus
Praying in Gethsemane,
And the ever thrilling story,
How He died upon the tree,
Cruel thorns His forehead piercing,
As His Spirit passed away?
This He did for you, my brother,
And He’s just the same today!

Refrain
