6525. Tell the Blessèd Story (Gardner)

1. Our Redeemer died to save us
On the cross of Calvary,
Suffered there that He might purchase
Endless life for you and me;
Tell to all the world the story
Of His wondrous sacrifice;
Tell them of His risen glory,
King of earth and paradise.

Tell the blessèd story
To the sons of men;
Tell the blessèd story
O’er and o’er again.

2. Tell of Jesus on the mountain,
Speaking to the multitude,
Preaching there the blessèd Gospel,
While He gave them earthly food;
Tell how winds and waves obeyed Him,
Owning thus His majesty,
When He stilled the angry tempest
On the Sea of Galilee. [Refrain]

3. Tell them all the words of comfort
Spoken by His loving voice,
Of His tender consolation,
Bidding troubled hearts rejoice;
Tell them of the living waters,
Flowing to refresh the soul,
And the golden crown that waits us
When at last we reach the goal. [Refrain]
