Scripture Verse

With my song will I praise Him. Psalm 28:7


Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)

Words & Mu­sic: Charles H. Ga­bri­el, 1906 (🔊 pdf nwc).


The sweet­est story told on earth,
Or heard in Heav’n above,
Is told of Je­sus and His birth,
Of Je­sus and His love.


O sto­ry ne­ver old,
The sweet­est ever told!
Until the gates of gold
Swing back for me;
I’ll tell it o’er and o’er,
And then on yon­der shore
It still for­ev­er­more my song shall be.

He took up­on Him­self the guilt
Of all my sins and thine,
And on the cross of Cal­va­ry
He paid thy debt and mine.


There was no oth­er good enough
To pay the price of sin;
He on­ly could un­lock the gate
Of Heav’n and let us in.


O dear­ly, dear­ly hath He loved
And we must love Him, too,
And trust in His re­deem­ing love,
And try His works to do.
