Tell the Glad Story

Full Text

1 Tell the glad story of Christ and his love,
Tell it, 'mid sorrow and strife,
Unto all who believe, and the Saviour receive,
He giveth eternal life.

Chorus:
Tell the glad story! Tell the glad story!
Tell it again and again;
How the King from above, in his wonderful love,
Has given his life for men.

2 Tell the glad story of Christ and his love,
Love everlasting and free.
It is offered to all; still repeat his sweet call,
O weary one, come to me. [Chorus]

3 Tell the glad story of Christ and his love,
Multitudes never have heard;
Spread the tidings today, not a moment delay,
Till all have received the word. [Chorus]

4 Tell the glad story of Christ and his love,
Sing of his victory, sing;
Let the Saviour of men be triumphant again,
In souls that shall crown him King. [Chorus]
