Full Text

1 Go tell the story of Jesus, that all the world may hear;
And tell it in simple fashion, that it may start the tear,
And touch the heart of the wayward; and maybe it will win
Another soul for the kingdom, out of the clutch of sin.

Refrain:
Tell the story of Jesus in a loving and earnest way;
Tell the story of Jesus,—it may win a soul today.

2 Go tell the story of Jesus to those about your way;
O tell of the pardon offered to all mankind today;
Tell them he loveth the sinner, altho’ he hates the sin;
And then, perhaps, they will listen, and let the Savior in. [Refrain]

3 Go tell the story of Jesus, and say, “He’s done for me
That which he is always ready to do for thine and thee.”
Out of a heart-burden speaking, thy words may win their way
Into the heart of the careless, and save a soul today. [Refrain]
