Representative Text

1 Tell the nations far and the nations near,
Of the wondrous love of the Saviour dear;
Let the gladsome news fill each heart with cheer,
Tell, O tell of His wondrous love.

Wondrous love,
Wondrous love,
Tell the story far and wide,
Let the whole world know that He loved us so,
Jesus Christ, the crucified.

2 Sound His praises far o’er the rolling wave,
Tell to distant lands that His life He gave,
Men from sin and death evermore to save,
Tell, O tell of His wondrous love. [Refrain]

3 With united voice let the chorus swell,
May it echo out over hill and dell,
Let the whole wide world of His mercy tell,
Tell, O tell of His wondrous love. [Refrain]
