Tell Me The Story Sweet


Tell me the story sweet,
Whisper it o’er and o’er,
I long to hear the words
Repeated evermore;
It doth within my heart
Tender emotions move;
The story sweet to me repeat
Of Jesus and His love.

Refrain:
Tell me the simple story,
It doth my heart so strangely move;
The story sweet to me repeat
Of Jesus and His love.

Tell me the story dear,
Breathing of life and peace,
No words can be to me
As comforting as these.
Like strains of holy song,
Wafted from heav’n above;
The story sweet to me repeat
Of Jesus and His love. [Refrain]

Tell me the story old,
Olden yet ever new;
The story of the Christ,
So beautiful and true.
As years are passing on,
More of God’s love I prove;
The story sweet to me repeat
Of Jesus and His love. [Refrain]
