Representative Text

1 Tell me the story of Jesus again,
Tell of His love, wonderful love;
Tell how he died for the children of men,
Wonderful, wonderful love!
When I am faint with the heat of the day,
Burdened with sorrow and care by the way,
Tell me of Him who on Calvary’s tree,
Suffered and died for a sinner like me.

Wonderful, wonderful love,
Wonderful, wonderful love!
How I shall sing, when I meet the great King,
His wonderful, wonderful love!

2 Out on the byways and highways of life,
Tell of His love, wonderful love;
How it will smooth away anger and strife,
Wonderful, wonderful love!
Comforts may fail me, and friends may forsake,
Evils oppress me, and sorrows o’ertake,
Yet in my heart shall this prayer ever be,—
Tell me of Jesus, who suffered for me. [Refrain]

3 Nothing on earth or in heaven so sweet;
Tell of His love, wonderful love;
Nothing so beautiful, perfect, complete,
Wonderful, wonderful love!
When I am near where the dark waters flow,
When thro’ the valley of shadows I go,
When face to face I my Saviour shall see,
This shall my song thro’ eternity be: [Refrain]
