1 Tell, O tell the wondrous story
Of our blest Redeemer’s birth,
How He left His home in glory
To redeem the lost of earth.

Refrain:
Tell, O! tell the blessèd story
Of His gracious love so free,
Glory, in the highest, glory,
Be to Christ eternally.

2 Tell, O tell the wondrous story
Of salvation full and free;
Jesus came, the Prince of Glory—
Lived and died for you and me. [Refrain]

3 Choirs of angels told His coming
To the shepherds on the plains,
While they listened mute with wonder—
Listened to the welcome strains. [Refrain]

4 Let us then repeat the message,
Tell, O tell it far and wide,
Of a ransom for the sinner,
Of a Savior crucified. [Refrain]
