Representative Text

1 Tell out the wonderful story,
Tell it where’er you go;
Tell of the King and his glory,
Tell how he loved us so.
This is the story most precious,
Jesus has died to redeem us;
You can tell out the sweet story,
You, yes, you.

Refrain:
You can tell out the sweet story,
You, yes, you.
Somebody’s life will be brighter,
Somebody’s care will be lighter;
You can tell out the sweet story,
You, yes, you.

2 Never a story so wondrous,
Tell it to all around;
While we were sinners he loved us,
Mercy and grace abound.
Wandering and weary he sought us,
Back to the Father he brought us;
You can tell out the sweet story,
You, yes, you.

3 Wonderful story of Jesus,
Tell every sin-sick soul;
Wonderful message of mercy,
Jesus can make them whole.
Still flows the wonderful river,
From every sin to deliver;
You can tell out the sweet story,
You, yes, you.
