O sweet is the story of Jesus,
The wonderful Savior of men,
Who suffered and died for the sinner,
I’ll tell it again and again!


O wonderful, wonderful story
The dearest that ever was told;
I’ll repeat it in glory,
The wonderful story,
Where I shall His beauty behold.

He came from the brightest of glory;
His blood as a ransom He gave,
To purchase eternal redemption;
And, O, He is mighty to save!


His mercy flows on like a river;
His love is unmeasured and free;
His grace is forever sufficient,
It reaches and purifies me.
