Peter P. Bilhorn (1865–1936)


O tell me more of Christ, my Sav­ior;
On this glad theme dwell o’er and o’er;
His bound­less grace, His sav­ing fa­vor,
His pre­cious name, O tell me more!


O tell me more! So much I need
His pow­er to keep, His hand to lead;
O tell me more of Him I love,
Until I see His face above.

O tell me more of love’s sweet sto­ry,
If you would cheer and com­fort me;
How Je­sus wept, the King of glo­ry,
Those ten­der tears of sym­pa­thy.


O tell me more! How waves of sor­row
Shall hear His voice say, Peace, be still;
How af­ter night, bright dawns the mor­row,
To those who trust His bless­èd will.


O tell me more! And I re­peat­ing
The hap­py news, shall spread the joy;
Come, bless­èd Lord, Thy work com­plet­ing,
Till songs of praise our lips em­ploy.
