1 Tell me the stories of Jesus,
God’s only Son,
Coming from mansions in glory,
The Holy One;
Yielding His throne with the Father,
To be earth’s child,
Bearing His burdens with patience,
So sweet! so mild!
Wonderful His enduement,
All others above;
Filled with peace, the Divine One
Was matchless in love.

Stories of Jesus,
Stories of Jesus,
Tell me the stories of Jesus,
My Saviour and King.

2 Tell me the stories of Jesus,
My Lord and King;
Glad will I be as I listen,
My soul will sing;
Tell me the dear stories often,
I love to hear,
And I would ask Him to tell me,
If He were near;
Tell of scenes by the wayside,
Tales of the blue sea,
Storms He stilled on the bosom
Of loved Galilee. [Refrain]

3 Tell me the stories of Jesus;
I long to know How He was touch’d by the needy,
And moved by woe;
Lifted despondent and fallen
From sins untold,
Raised from the grave one beloved,
Death could not hold;
How He soothed with compassion
Hearts saddened by fear,
Gave new life by His mercy
To all who would hear. [Refrain]

4 Tell me the stories of Jesus;
Oh, I would be
Closely attent were He speaking
Now unto me;
Life has no guerdon more precious,
Nor aught so fair,
As Thee, my Saviour and Master,
Whose love I’d share;
Thee I’ll lovingly follow,
Faithfully attend,
Ever live in Thy presence,
Redeemer and Friend. [Refrain]
