Tell Me More about Jesus

Full Text

1 ’Tis known on earth and Heaven, too,
’Tis sweet to me because it’s true;
The old, old story is e’er new;
Tell me more about Jesus.

Tell me more about Jesus,
Tell me more about Jesus;
Him would I know who loved me so;
Tell me more about Jesus.

2 Earth’s fairest flowers will droop and die,
Dark clouds o’erspread yon azure sky,
Life’s dearest joys flit fleetest by;
Tell me more about Jesus. [Refrain]

3 When overwhelmed with unbelief,
When burdened with a blinding grief,
Come kindly then to my relief;
Tell me more about Jesus. [Refrain]

4 And when the glory land I see,
And take the place prepared for me,
Through endless years my song shall be,
Tell me more about Jesus. [Refrain]
