Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

I'll Tell It

Full Text

1 Nothing to say for Jesus,
When He has done all for me?
Nothing to say for Jesus,
Who suffered on Calvary,
Redeeming my soul from sorrow,
And fitting it for the skies?
Oh! how can I then be silent,
In view of the sacrifice?

Chorus:
I'll tell it, I'll tell it,
How precious a ransom, He gave;
I'll tell of His love,
And His wonderful power to save.

2 Nothing to say for Jesus,
When sinners inquire to know?
Nothing to say for Jesus,
And tell them what they must do,
To flee from the wrath that's coming—
Escaping the judgment day,—
To taste of His great salvation?
Oh! shall I have this to say? [Chorus]

3 Nothing to say for Jesus,
Ashamed of my Savior now?
Nothing to say for Jesus,
Not even His name avow?
And does He not plainly tell me,
"If thou wilt say naught for me,
In glory, before my Father,
I will not say aught for thee?" [Chorus]
