I HAVE AN OLD, OLD STORY.  IT HAPPENED LONG AGO.
IT'S THE BEST STORY THAT'S EVER BEEN TOLD.
A CHILD WAS BORN TO MARY, A VIRGIN BIRTH YOU SEE.
IT WAS GOD COME DOWN TO THIS EARTH TO SAVE YOU AND ME.

CHORUS
IT'S AN OLD, OLD STORY, BUT THE VERY BEST ONE,
HOW GOD CHOSE TO SAVE THE WORLD WITH HIS ONE AND ONLY SON.

AN ANGEL CAME TO MARY; TOLD HER THE GOOD NEWS.
HER SIMPLE, HUMBLE FAITH IN GOD WAS WHY HE DID CHOOSE.
CHRIST WAS BORN IN BETHLEHEM IN A HUMBLE STALL.
SIMPLE SHEPHERDS WORSHIPPED HIM; HE CAME TO SAVE US ALL.

CHORUS

A SIGN CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN; A STAR SHONE IN THE SKY.
IT LED THREE WISE MEN WITH THEIR GIFTS TO THE PLACE WHERE HE DID LIE.
THEY KNELT DOWN TO WORSHIP HIM; HEAR THE ANGELS SING:
“GLORY HALLELUJAH, BLESSED SAVIOR AND OUR KING!”

CHORUS

MIRACLE UPON MIRACLE, THE PEOPLE STOOD IN AWE.
JESUS CAME TO THIS WORLD THAT WE MIGHT KNOW OUR GOD.
BUT PEOPLE CAN BE IGNORANT; THEY HUNG HIM ON A TREE.
THERE HE BLED AND DIED, JUST TO SAVE YOU AND ME.

CHORUS

MY STORY IS NOT ENDED; IT'S ONLY JUST BEGUN,
FOR IN THREE DAY'S TIME GOD RAISED UP HIS ONLY SON.
WHO IS, WHO WAS, WHO IS TO COME, 
FOREVER AND EVER, GOD'S ONE AND ONLY SON.
