|107||I Love to Tell the Story|
|(HANKEY. 7,6,7,6,D. With Refrain)|
|Katherine Hankey, 1874||William G. Fischer, 1869|
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
It satisfies my longings As nothing else could do.
I love to tell the stroy, 'Twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story Of Jesus and his love.
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.
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
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 loved so long.
