Tell me the story of Jesus,


    • Tell me the story of Jesus, 
    • write on my heart every word! 
    • Tell me the story most precious, 
    • sweetest that ever was heard. 
    • Tell how the angels in chorus 
    • sang, as they welcomed His birth, 
    • ‘Glory to God in the highest, 
    • peace and good tidings to earth.’ 

    • Tell me the story of Jesus, 
    • write on my heart every word, 
    • tell me the story most precious, 
    • sweetest that ever was heard. 

    • Fasting alone in the desert, 
    • tell of the days that He passed; 
    • how He was tried and was tempted, 
    • yet was triumphant at last. 
    • Tell of the years of His labours, 
    • tell of the sorrows He bore; 
    • He was despised and afflicted, 
    • homeless, rejected, and poor. 

    • Tell of the cross where they nailed Him, 
    • dying in anguish and pain; 
    • tell of the grave where they laid Him; 
    • tell how He liveth again. 
    • Love, in that story so tender, 
    • clearer than ever I see; 
    • stay, let me weep while you whisper 
    • love paid the ransom for me
