THE STOlRY TOLD.

Of Jesus and lis glory,
Of Jesus me for "lhe soryv
Of unseent things :albove-
Of Jesusns alel his glry,
Of Jesus an+d his love.''







12 THE OLD, OLD STORY.

You want the old, old story,"
And nothing else will do;
Indeed, I cannot wonder,
It always seems so ?new!

I'often wish that some one
Would tell it m,, each day;
I never should get tired
Of what he had to say.

But I am wasting moments!
Oh! how shall I begin
To tell the old, old story,"
How Jesus saves from sin?



-. NCE in a pleasant garden
S- God placed a happy pair;
And all within was peaceful,
S- A And all around was fair.

But oh they disobeyed Him;
The one thing He denied
They longed for, took, and tasted-
They ate it, and-they died!







THE STORY TOLD. 13



























Yet, in His love and pity,
At once the Lord declaired.
FHow 1ma1, though lost and iinied.
Iiglt after all be spared.
How ~l,thouh ](St : unl

.[gh af r l ) p:r .







14 THE OLD, OLD STORY.
















For one of Eve's descendants,
Not sinful, like the rest,
Sl ..i 1 spoil the work of Satan,
And man be saved and blest!
He should be son cf Adam,
But Son of God as well,
And bring a full salvation
From sin, and death, and hell.
Four thousand years were over;
Adam and Eve had died,
'The following generation,
And many more beside.






THE ~TORY TOLD. 15

At I f-t -ome shepherds, watching
S 1. -!t -l their flocks at night,
W\ ..i t rtled in the darkness
1l\ -Ilange and heavenly light:
A light of dazzling splendor,
Far brighter than the sun;
They knew 't was God's own glory
That round about them shone.
One of the holy angels
Had come from heaven above,
To tell the true, true story
Of Jesus and his love.
He came to bring glad tidings:"
"You need not, must not fear;
For Christ, your new-born Saviour,
Lies in the village near !"

And many other angels
Took up the story then:
"To God on high be glory,
Good-will and peace to men."







THE STORY TOLD. 17











k-









And was it true-that story?
They went at once to see,
And found Him in a manger,
And knew that it was He.

He whom the Father promised
So many ages past,

Yes. He had come at last!
d come to sae poor sinnr;







18 THE OLD, OLD STORY.





,---- .::-- ~ f













'T was his delight" to do it,
To seek and save the lost,
Although He knew beforehand-
Knew all that it would cost.

Hle lived a life most holy;
His every thought was love,
And every action showed it,
To man, and God above.
To nmn, and God above.







THE STORY TOLD.















His path in life was lowly;
He was a working-man:"
Who knows the poor man's trials
So well as Jesus can?

His last three years were lovely!
He could no more be hid;
And time and strength would fail me
To tell the good. He did.

He gave away no money,
For He had none to give;
But he had power of healing,
And made dead people live.







20 TH E OLD, OLD STORY.

He did kind things so kindly,
It seemed His heart's delight
To make poor people happy,
From morning until night.















He always seemed at leisure
For every one who came:
However tired or busy,
They found Him just the same."

He heard each tale of sorrow
With an attentive car;
And took away each burden
Of suffering, sin, or fear.







THE STORY TOLD. 21


















He was a man of sorrows,"
And when He gave relief,
He gave it like a brother,
Acquainted with the grief."



Such was The Man Christ Jesus !"
The friend of sinful man, .
But hush! the tale grows sadder:
I'11 tell it-if I can!







22 THE OLD, OLD STORY.

This gentle, holy Jesus,
Without a spot or stain,
By wicked hands was taken,
And i n. i:h .1, and slain!







.1 '0. ":'






Look! look!-if you can bear it-
Look at your dying Lord!
Stand near the cross and view him:
"Behold the Lamb of God!"

His hands and feet are pierced,
He cannot hide his face;
And cruel men stand gazing,
In crowds, about the place.







THE STORY TOLD. 23






4c--7 r




















They laugh at him and mock him!
They tell him to come down,"
And leave that cross of suffering,
And change it for a crown.







24 THE OLD, OLD STORY.
Why did he bear their mocking ?
Was he "the mighty God"?
And could he have destroyed them
With one almighty word?

Yes, Jesus could have done it;
But let me tell you why
He would not use his power,
But choose to stay and die.

He had become our surety;
And what we could not pay,
He paid instead, andfor s,
On that one dreadful day.

For you and me he suffered;
'T was for our sins he died;
And "not for our sins only,"
But all the world's beside!

And now, the work is "finished!"
The sinner's debt is paid,
Because on Christ the righteous"
The sin of all was laid.







THE STORY TOLD. 25

O wonderful redemption,
God's remedy for sin,
The door of heaven is open,
And you may enter in.

For God released our "Surety,"
To show the work was done;
And Jesus' resurrection
Declared the victory won!














And now, lie has ascended,
And sits upon the throne,
"To be a prince and Saviour,"
And claim us for his own.

26 THE OLD, OLD STORY.

But when he left his people,
Hie promised them to send
"The Comforter" to teach them
And guide them, to the end.

And that same Holy Spirit
Is with us to this day,
And ready now to teach us
The "new and living way."

Do you at heart believe it?
Do you believe it's true,

And, therefore, meant for you?

Then take this "great salvation;"
For Jesus loves to give!
Believe! and you receive it,
Believe! and you shall live.






THE STORY WELCOMED. 31
And if this simple message
Has now brought peace to you,
Make known the old, old story,"
For others need it too.
Let every body see it,
That Christ has made you free;
And when it sets one longing,
Say, "Jesus died for thee ."
Soon, soon, our eyes shall see Him!
And in our home above
We'11 sing the old, old story
0/ Jesus and his love.
