Lyrics

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.

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!
