Representative Text

1 Oh, the gospel news proclaim,
Go ye forth in Jesus’ name,
Tell it in song, tell it in song;
Christ your cause will e’er sustain,
And with Him, the King, you’ll reign,
Tell it in song, tell it in song.

Refrain:
Of His lowly, humble birth,
How He blessed the poor of earth,
Tell it in song, tell it in song;
How He walk’d on Galilee;
How He died on Calvary’s tree,
Tell it in song, tell it in song.

2 How His life He meekly gave,
Precious souls from sin to save,
Tell it in song, tell it in song;
See His glorious banner wave
All triumphant o’er the grave,
Tell it in song, tell it in song. [Refrain]

3 Of His home beyond life’s sea,
Where He dwells eternally,
Tell it in song, tell it in song;
In that home a place will be—
Sinner, yes, for you and me,
Tell it in song, tell it in song. [Refrain]
