Representative Text

1 Go tell the wonderful story today,
Tell it today, do not delay,
Gladden some heart on its sorrowing way,
Go tell the story today.

Refrain:
Go tell the news where the weary may be,
Go and the sorrowing captive set free,
Go tell of Jesus who saves you and me,
Go tell the story today.

2 Go tell the story what Jesus has done,
Tell it today, do not delay—
Praises to God for the gift of His Son,
Go tell the story today. [Refrain]

3 Go tell the weary who struggled with sin,
Tell it today, do not delay—
Speak to them gently and gather them in,
Go tell the story today. [Refrain]
