Representative Text

1 Tell again the wondrous story,
Of the Savior’s humble birth;
How He left His home in Glory,
To redeem the lost of earth.

Refrain:
Tell again the gospel story,
O it thrills me more and more;
Tell of Jesus and His glory,
Tell it o’er, yes, o’er and o’er.

2 Tell the gospel story ever,
There are those who do not know;
God rewards your each endeavor,
Tell it then where’er you go. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ it bathe the heart in sorrow,
Tell of dark Gethsemane;
How the Lord foresaw the morrow,
With its cross on Calvary. [Refrain]

4 Tell again the cruel story,
Of His death upon the tree;
Of His spirit’s flight to glory,
Where He intercedes for me. [Refrain]
