I Love to Tell The Story

Words by A. Catherine Hankey
Music by William G. Fischer

Psalm 66:16
"Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and
I will declare what he hath done for my soul."

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.

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.

Chorus:
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, '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.

Chorus:
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, 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.

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