1 There’s a story which I love to tell,
As rejoicing on I go;
That Jesus gave His life to save,
The world from sin and woe,
And it fills my soul with joy to know,
That He e’er could love me so;
His love for you is ever true,
Then tell it as you go.

Tell it as you go, that the world may know,
That He fills your life with song,
Makes you joyous all day long;
Tell it as you go, that the world may know,
That you’re on His side whate’er betide,
Sin’s pow’r to overthrow.

2 There’s a song which swells within my soul,
Making life a gladsome rhyme;
Since He came in, saved me from sin,
And made the joy-bells chime.
Can you sing this song of joy with me,
Does your heart with love o’erflow?
To Him on high who’s ever nigh,
Then tell it as you go. [Refrain]

3 There’s a hand that guides me day by day,
As I journey on with cheer;
‘Tis strong and sure, ‘twill e’er endure,
I trust Him without fear;
And that others may His pow’r receive,
And His love and goodness know;
I’m living true to Him; are you?
Then tell it as you go. [Refrain]
