457 ~ I Love to Tell the Story
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 longing 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.
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.
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.
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.
