When The Old Old Story Was New
by The Kingsmen


If I had been there to see it all happen
On the hill just outside Bethlehem
I would gaze at the stars where the angels sang "Glory"
Find the place, there was no room for him

If I had been there, that day at the Jordan
When John looked up and called him "The Lamb"
I would trace every step that took him to Calvary
Watch the nails pierce his feet and his hands

But I'm here in this moment 200 years later
I know in my heart its all true
So I'll tell it today like I would have back then
When the old, old story was new

If I had been there to hear "He Is Risen"
I'd run to that cold, empty tomb
I would stand on the mount where Jesus ascended
And rejoice that he's coming back soon

But I'm here in this moment 200 years later
I know in my heart its all true
So I'll tell it today like I would have back then
When the old, old story was new

He's still the truth the life and the way
And the gospel still has the power to save

But I'm here in this moment 200 years later
I know in my heart its all true
So I'll tell it today like I would have back then
When the old, old story was new
