[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 (1864–1915)

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.
