I Love to Tell the Story, #212

Lyrics

Verse 1
I love to tell the story
Of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory
Of Jesus and His love.
I love to tell the story,
Because I know ’tis true;
I satisfies my longings
as nothing else would do.

Chorus
I love to tell the story,
’Twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.

Verse 2
I love to tell the story;
More wonderful it seems
Than all the golden fancies
Of all our golden dreams.
I love to tell the story,
It did so much for me;
And that is just the reason
I tell it now to thee.

Verse 3
I love to tell the story;
’Tis pleasant to repeat
What seems, each time I tell it,
More wonderfully sweet.
I love to tell the story,
For some have never heard
The message of salvation
From God’s own holy word.

Verse 4
I love to tell the story;
For those who know it best
Seem hungering and thirsting
To hear it like the rest.
And when, in scenes of glory,
I sing the new, new song,
’Twill be the old, old story
That I have lov’d so long.
