1 Have you ever heard the story
Of the Babe of Bethlehem,
Who was worshiped by the angels
And the wise and holy men,
How He taught the learned doctors
In the temple far away?
I am glad to tell you, brother,
He is just the same today!

Refrain:
He’s just the same today,
Yes, just the same today,
I am glad to tell you, brother,
He is just the same today!

2 Have you ever heard how Jesus
Walked upon the rolling sea,
To His dear disciples tossing
On the waves of Galilee,
How He rescued sinking Peter
From his danger and dismay?
I am glad to tell you, brother,
He is just the same today! [Refrain]

3 Once while resting on a pillow
In the vessel, fast asleep,
There arose a mighty tempest
On the wild and raging deep;
“Peace, be still,” the Lord commanded,
Ev’ry angry wave did stray;
I am glad to tell you, brother,
He is just the same today! [Refrain]

4 Surely you have heard how Jesus
Prayed down in Gethsemane,
How He shed His precious lifeblood
On the rugged, shameful tree,
Cruel thorns His forehead piercing,
As His Spirit passed away;
Brother, won’t you come and love Him?
He is just the same today. [Refrain]
