Lyrics

There is a story sweet to hear,
I love to tell it, too:
It fills my heart with hope and cheer,
’Tis old, yet ever new.

Refrain

’Tis old yet ever new;
’Tis old yet ever new;
I know, I feel it’s true:
’Tis old but ever new.

They tell me God the Son came down
From His bright throne to die,
That I might wear a starry crown,
And dwell with Him on high.

Refrain

They say He bore the cross for me,
And suffered in my place,
That I might always happy be,
And ransomed by His grace.

Refrain

O wondrous love! so great, so vast,
So boundless and so free!
Low at Thy feet my all I cast;
I covet only Thee.
