Refrain: Tell me the story of Jesus, Write on my heart ev'ry word; Tell me the story most precious, Sweetest that ever was heard. 2 Fasting alone in the desert, Tell of the days that are past, How for our sins He was tempted, Yet was triumphant at last. Tell of the years of His labor, Tell of the sorrow He bore, He was despised and afflicted, Homeless, rejected and poor. [Refrain] 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.

Holy Spirit, Faithful Guide

Author: Marcus M. Wells Appears in 615 hymnals Scripture: Acts 8:29 Lyrics: 1 Holy Spirit, faithful Guide, Ever near the Christian’s side; Gently lead us by the hand, Pilgrims in a desert land; Weary souls fore’er rejoice, While they hear that sweetest voice, Whisp'ring softly, “Wand'rer, come! Follow Me, I’ll guide thee home.” 2 Ever present, truest Friend, Ever near Thine aid to lend, Leave us not to doubt and fear, Groping on in darkness drear; When the storms are raging sore, Hearts grow faint, and hopes give o’er. Whisp'ring softly, “Wand'rer, come! Follow Me, I’ll guide thee home.” 3 When our days of toil shall cease, Waiting still for sweet release, Nothing left but heav'n and prayer, Wond'ring if our names were there; Wading deep the dismal flood, Pleading naught but Jesus’ blood, Whisp'ring softly, “Wand'rer, come! Follow Me, I’ll guide thee home.” Used With Tune: [Holy spirit, faithful Guide]
