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.
