Full Text

1 O help me tell the story,
Of Christ my Lord and King;
For of His boundless mercy
My soul delights to sing.

O help me tell the story
Of Jesus’ boundless love,
Till, with the Church triumphant,
I sing His praise above!

2 He brought me out of bondage,
He paid my debts of sin:
The door of Life He opened,
That I might enter in. [Refrain]

3 He left His home in glory,
He laid His scepter down,
And on the cross He suffered,
That I might wear a crown. [Refrain]

4 By this my one Endeavour,
To glorify His name;
The story of Redemption
To all the world proclaim. [Refrain]
