Scripture Verse

[He] made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:7–8

William C. Martin


O tell me o’er and o’er again
The tale I love so well,
Of how the King of glory left His throne,
And came a humble man among
Our sinful race to dwell,
That He might save and claim us for His own.


O tell the sweet old story once again,
Of how the Savior loved the sons of men;
He loved them, oh, so well,
He came on earth to dwell;
O tell the sweet old Gospel story once again.

I am both weak and sinful,
But one thing I surely know,
That Jesus fills my heart with grace and love,
That He will guide me safely thro’
My journey here below,
And then will take me to Himself above.


O tell again the story
Of His mercy and His grace,
The story that is told of Him alone;
Of how He died in torment,
In the helpless sinner’s place,
And conquered and is now upon His throne.
