Representative Text

1 Have you found Jesus a Saviour indeed?
Go, and tell others the story;
Is Hus sufficient for life’s ev’ry need?
Sing of His grace and His glory.

Refrain:
Go, and tell others the story,
Wonderful, wonderful story!
Sing of His grace and His glory,
Christ is a Saviour indeed.

2 Tell of the Shepherd, still seeking to save,
Go, and tell others the story;
Tell how His life as a ransom He gave,
Sing of His grace and His glory. [Refrain]

3 Tell of the light that shines down on your way,
Go, and tell others the story;
Comfort and strength freely given each day,
Sing of His grace and His glory. [Refrain]

4 Tell of the home He has gone to prepare,
Go, and tell others the story;
Tell of the bliss all His lov’d ones will share,
Sing of His grace and His glory. [Refrain]
