1 Do you know the love of Jesus? have you felt His pard’ning grace?
Tell it over, tell it over;
Do you see a wondrous beauty in the blessed Savior’s face,
Tell it over, tell it over.

Chorus:
Tell it over, tell it over;
There are many that await the news to hear;
Tell it over, tell it over,
Tell the story of redemption far and near.

2 Have you been to the Redeemer? has He brightened all your way?
Tell it over, tell it over;
You can cheer the hearts about you as you journey day by day,
Tell it over, tell it over. [Chorus]

3 Hath He taken ev’ry burden? hath he given perfect peace?
Tell it over, tell it over,
From the chains of sin that bound you hath His spirit brought release?
Tell it over, tell it over. [Chorus]
