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


Tell me o’er and o’er again,
While the bells are ring­ing;
Tell me of the King of men,
Earth’s re­demp­tion bring­ing;
Tell me of the town of old,
Where a won­drous star of gold
Of the Sav­ior’s com­ing told;
Tell me of the King.


Tell the sto­ry of the King,
Let the theme tri­um­phant ring,
He who came our peace to bring,
Tell me of the King.

Tell me of the gild­ed rocks
Lit with sud­den glo­ry;
Tell me of the dream­ing flocks
And the Christ­mas sto­ry;
Tell me o’er and o’er again,
How the watch­ing shep­herd men
Saw the star from vale and glen;
Tell me of the King.


Tell me how the an­gels sang
Joy to ev­ery na­tion;
Tell me how the chor­us rang
Over all cre­ation;
Tell, oh, tell the won­drous theme
Of the King of kings su­preme,
Born the peo­ple to re­deem;
Tell me of the King.
