1 Jesus died to save us,
Life eternal He gave us;
Upon Calvary’s cross He paid the price of sin;
Tidings of salvation,
Shout with glad ovation,
Until every nation shall His praise begin.

Tell the beautiful story,
Tell the beautiful story
Of His wonderful glory,
Until every nation shall His praise begin.

2 Fill the world with singing,
Set the merry bells ringing,
Shout and publish to every creature Jesus’ name;
Send the leaves of healing,
Life and light revealing,
Until every nation shall His love proclaim. [Refrain]

3 Praise His name forever,
He is strong to deliver;
Naught is able to sever us from His embrace;
In the night He sought us,
To the light He brought us,
And at last we shall behold Him face to face. [Refrain]
