Scripture: 1 John 4:14
1 I love to tell the story Of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and his glory, Of Jesus and his love.
I love to tell the story, Because I know it's true;
It satisfies my longings As nothing else could do.
I love to tell the story; I'll sing this theme in glory
And tell the old, old story Of Jesus and his love.
3 I love to tell the story; How pleasant to repeat
What seems, each time I tell it, More wonderfully sweet!
I love to tell the story, For some have never heard
The message of salvation From God's own holy Word. [Refrain]
4 I love to tell the story; For those who know it best
Seem hungering and thirsting To hear it like the rest.
And when in scenes of glory I sing the new, new song,
I'll sing the old, old story That I have loved so long. [Refrain]
