If you know where to get a good pho­to of Zel­ley (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Have you, my dear brother,
Been rescued from sin?
Is Christ the Redeemer abiding within?
Would you help some other salvation to win?
Then tell the glad story abroad.


Oh, tell the glad story,
O tell what you know,
That sinners find cleansing in Calvary’s flow,
And ev’ry heart may be made whiter than snow,
Oh, tell the glad story abroad.

Are you, my dear brother,
Washed whiter than snow?
And now does the cleansing blood over you flow?
And would you have others the same joy to know?
Then tell the glad story abroad.


Does Christ, my dear brother,
Within you now reign?
And sinful enjoyments do you now disdain?
Oh, would you help others a heaven to gain?
Then tell the glad story abroad.
