1I 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;
It satisfies my longings
As nothing else can do.
I love to tell the story,
’Twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story,
Of Jesus and His love.
2I 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.
I love to tell the story,
’Twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story,
Of Jesus and His love.
3I 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 loved so long!
I love to tell the story,
’Twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story,
Of Jesus and His love.
