Oft As I Hear The Story

 Next Poem          

Oft as I hear the story
Of Jesus and his love,
It fills my soul with glory
Akin to that above,
It thrills my heart with gladness
It else could never know;
No room for gloom or sadness
Since Jesus loved me so.


Yes! I believe the story
Of Jesus and his love;
It fills the earth with glory
From God's own throne above;
Love's banner waving o'er us,
Let us exult and sing,
And with our happy chorus
Make the glad welkin ring.


O! I will sing the story
Of Jesus and his love;
The never-failing story
Of God's redeeming love;
That love my heart subduing,
Shall keep me near to Thee;
Thy footsteps still pursuing,
Till I Thy glory see.


And when I see Thy glory,
With Thy redeemed above,
I still will sing the story
Of Jesus and his love;
For ev'n in realms of glory,
My highest joy shall be,
That I have learned the story
That Jesus died for me!
