Full Text

1 Tell me again of dark Calvary;
Tell of the Lamb once slain there for me,
Tell of the love as deep as the sea—
Tell me again of Jesus.

Refrain:
Tell me again the story sweet;
Tell me again of love complete;
Tell me again of mercy replete,
Tell me again of Jesus.

2 Tell me again the story so dear,
Story that brought me comfort and cheer,
Story that broke my bondage to fear,
Tell me again of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Tell me again the story of grace;
Tell it abroad to all of the race,
Of Him who died for them in disgrace:
Tell once again of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 When I shall reach the city of gold,
When all its unknown glories unfold,
Still I shall want that story of old;
Tell me again of Jesus. [Refrain]
