1 Sing out the tidings that tell us of Jesus,
Wonderful story of love;
Sing it to all that from sin he now frees us;
Wonderful story of love;
When we were straying, in pity he sought us,
Wonderful story of love;
Out of the darkness of sin hath he brought us,
Wonderful story of love.

Refrain:
Preach it and pray it and sing it and shout it,
Wonderful story of love;
Men are now dying, they perish without it,
Wonderful story of love.

2 Tell of his birth in the Bethlehem manger,
Wonderful story of love;
Tell how he came to redeem us from danger,
Wonderful story of love;
Came from the riches and crowns of his glory,
Wonderful story of love;
We will keep telling the marvelous story,
Wonderful story of love. [Refrain]

3 Tell of the tree upon which he did languish,
Wonderful story of love;
How for poor sinners he suffered in anguish,
Wonderful story of love;
Tell of the tomb of the rich where they laid him,
Wonderful story of love;
Tell it till all have received and obeyed him,
Wonderful story of love. [Refrain]

4 Tell how he rose from the grave and ascended,
Wonderful story of love;
Rose in great triumph, his sorrows all ended,
Wonderful story of love;
Soon he is coming in glory and power,
Wonderful story of love;
Robed and rejoicing, we hail the glad hour,
Wonderful story of love. [Refrain]
