Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

48. The “Good News” Must be Told

1 The story of redeeming love
More precious is than gold,
And on thro’ all the years of time
The “good news” must be told.

Refrain:
That sweet, old story must be told,
The Gospel story must be told,
The story strange and true,
So old and ever new;
The sweet, old story must be told.

2 It is a story strangely sweet,
That never groweth old,
And to the aged and the young
The “good news” must be told. [Refrain]

3 O yes! our lips must honor him,
His love must be extolled,
His grace to men must be made known,
The “good news” must be told. [Refrain]

4 To those who long for heav’nly peace,
To wand’rers from the fold,
To all who thirst for righteousness
The “good news” must be told. [Refrain]
