They tell me a story
Of wonderful love,
How One came to earth from
His mansion above,
And poured out His lifeblood
Upon Calvary;
’Twas Jesus, my Savior,
That suffered for me.

Refrain

The story is true,
I know it is true,
That wonderful story is true;
It is written on high,
And His word cannot die,
That wonderful story is true.

Refrain

They tell me a story
Of wonderful light;
He rose from the grave in
The power of His might,
That one day in glory
With Him I might be;
O Jesus, my Savior,
That victory for me!

Refrain

They tell me a story
Of wonderful grace;
How I, tho’ a sinner,
May see His dear face;
Since once in His mercy
He died to save me;
O Jesus, my Savior,
I’ll now live for Thee!

Refrain
