99. I Love to Tell the Story

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 would do.

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.

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.

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 hear the story Of unseen things above,
Creation and God's glory, Of Jesus and his love;
How Light o'ercomes the darkness, The vision of Shalom;
How God dwells deep within us, And truth will lead us home.

I love to hear the story, It covers us in glory,
That joyful wonderful story Of God's eternal love.
