Representative Text

1 Tell me all about Jesus,
Who came from heav’n above;
Tell me more of His goodness,
More of His precious love.

Refrain:
Tell me all about Jesus,
Tell me that I may know
The story of the Saviour,
Who loves, who loves me so.

2 Tell me all about Jesus,
The Lamb of Calvary;
Tell me more of His mercy,
More of His grace to me. [Refrain]

3 Tell me all about Jesus,
Who daily cares for me;
Tell me why He should love me,
Why He should die for me. [Refrain]

4 Tell me all about Jesus,
Repeat the story o’er;
Never shall I grow weary
Hearing it more and more. [Refrain]
