55. Tell me the Story of Jesus

1 Tell me the story of Jesus
Write on my heart every word,
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard;
Tell how the angels in chorus
Sang as they welcomed his birth,--
Glory to God in the highest!
Peace and good tidings to earth.

Chorus:
Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word,
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.

2 Fasting, alone in the desert,
Tell of the days that he passed,
How for our sins he was tempted,
Yet was triumphant at last;
Tell of the years of his labor,
Tell of the sorrows he bore,
He was despised and afflicted,
Homeless, rejected and poor.
[Chorus]

3 Tell of the cross where they nailed him,
Writhing in anguish and pain,
Tell of the grave where they laid him,
Tell how he liveth again;
Love in that story so tender,
Clearer than ever I see;
Stay, let me weep while you whisper,
Love paid the ransom for me.
[Chorus]
