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 ‘tis true; It satisfies my longings As nothing else can do.

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 ‘tis true; It satisfies my longings As nothing else can do.

Refrain: I love to tell the story, ‘Twill be my theme in glory, To tell the old, old story Of Jesus and His love.

2. I love to tell the story; More wonderful it seems Than all the golden fancies Of all our golden dreams. I love to tell the story, It did so much for me; And that is just the reason I tell it now to thee.

3. I love to tell the story; ‘Tis 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.

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, ‘Twill be the old, old story That I have loved so long.
