John R. Sweney (1837–1899)


Our Re­deem­er died to save us
On the cross of Cal­va­ry,
Suffered there that He might pur­chase
Endless life for you and me;
Tell to all the world the sto­ry
Of His won­drous sac­ri­fice;
Tell them of His ris­en glo­ry,
King of earth and pa­ra­dise.


Tell the bless­èd sto­ry to the sons of men;
Tell the bless­èd sto­ry o’er and o’er again.

Tell of Je­sus on the mount­ain,
Speaking to the mul­ti­tude,
Preaching there the bless­èd Gos­pel,
While He gave them earth­ly food;
Tell how winds and waves ob­eyed Him,
Owning thus His ma­jes­ty,
When He stilled the an­gry tem­pest
On the Sea of Ga­li­lee.


Tell them all the words of com­fort
Spoken by His lov­ing voice,
Of His ten­der con­so­la­tion,
Bidding trou­bled hearts re­joice;
Tell them of the liv­ing wa­ters,
Flowing to re­fresh the soul,
And the gold­en crown that waits us
When at last we reach the goal.
