I Love To Tell the Story

I.
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
It satisfies my longings
As nothing else can 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

II.
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.

(Back to Chorus)

III.
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 never heard
The message of salvation
From God’s own holy Word.

(Back to Chorus)

IV.
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 loved so long

(Back to Chorus)
