Representative Text

1 Tell the story, tender, sweet,
At the Savior’s wounded feet
I have found redeeming mercy, full and free,
And a flood of rapture glows
In my heart and overflows,
For the love of Jesus saves even me.

Refrain:
Crown Him with glory,
Tell the sweet story,
Tell the name, the fame of Jesus far and wide,
Crown Him with glory,
Tell the sweet story,
Tell the whole wide world of Jesus crucified.

2 Tell the story o’er and o’er,
I have opened wide the door
Where the savior knocked and waited day by day,
Now His praise I love to sing,
My Redeemer, Savior, King,
And His word my soul delights to obey. [Refrain]

3 Tell the story, tender, sweet,
All its matchless strains repeat,—
Of a soul redeemed and filled with love divine;
Now for Christ alone I live,
And to Him my service give,
For the love of Jesus now is mine. [Refrain]
