Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.1156

First Line: I love to hear the story ,

I love to hear the story
Which angel voices tell,
How once the King of Glory
Came down on earth to dwell :
I am both weak and sinful,
But this I surely know :
The Lord came down to save me,
Because He loved me so !

2 I'm glad my blessed Saviour
Was once a child like me,
To show how pure and holy
His little ones might be ;
And if I try to follow
His footsteps here below,
He never will forget me,
Because He loves me so !

3 To sing His love and mercy,
My sweetest songs I'll raise ;
And though I cannot see Him,
I know He hears my praise ;
For He has kindly promised
That I shall surely go
To sing among His angels,
Because He loves me so !
