Repeat the sweet sto­ry of Je­sus to me,
Oh, tell me the sto­ry once more;
Tho’ oft­en I’ve heard it, each time it is told,
’Tis sweet­er than ev­er be­fore.


Oh, tell me the sto­ry of Je­sus once more;
’Tis sweet­er, yes, sweet­er
Each time than be­fore.

Oh, tell me once more of His won­der­ful love,
His good­ness and mer­cy to me;
When hope­less­ly lost in the dark­ness of sin,
He found me and bade me go free.


Oh, tell me again of the land of the blest,
Where sor­row and sin ne­ver come;
Where I with the Sav­ior shall ev­er­more dwell,
Oh, tell me of Hea­ven, my home.
