How many times has He lightened our cares,
Over and over again!
How many times has He answered our prayers,
Over and over again!
Then tell of His goodness to thee and to thine,
And tell of His mercies to me and to mine;
Repeat the old story of pardon divine,
Over and over again.

Refrain

Over and over again,
Over and over again,
O what a wonderful story to tell,
Over and over again.

He ne’er refuses to hear, tho’ we call
Over and over again,
Sends show’rs of blessings so freely on all,
Over and over again;
Oh, why are you silent so often, so long,
When telling the story will turn them from wrong?
Then tell it, O tell it in praise or in song,
Over and over again.

Refrain

Tho’ we may wander in byways of sin,
Over and over again,
The heart of Jesus will bid us come in,
Over and over again;
Then let us be willing, wherever the place,
To tell of His kindness, His pardon, His grace,
And some day in glory we’ll look on His face,
Over and over again.

Refrain
