Lyrics

Of all the sweet stories
That ever were heard
In cottage or palace hall,
The story of Jesus,
As told in God’s Word,
Is the very best story of all.

Refrain

’Tis the very best story of all;
’Tis the very best story of all;
He has suffered for you,
Is the promise true,
In the very best story of all.

He’s waiting to save
From the bondage of sin,
When you in temptation fall;
Oh, open your heart’s door,
And He will come in,
Says the very best story of all.

Refrain

Oh, come to the Savior
For refuge tonight;
Make haste to obey His call;
Your soul shall be filled
With the heavenly light,
Of this very best story of all.

Refrain
