Lyrics

Tell the story of salvation,
Over mountain, plain and sea;
Bear to all the glorious tidings,
Christ has died from sin to free!

Refrain

Tell, oh! tell the wondrous story,
Of the Savior’s matchless love,
How He died that all might enter
Into life and joy above!

Tell the story to the wanderers,
Try to lead them to the fold;
Tell them how the Savior loves them,
And would give them peace untold.

Refrain

Tell the story, sing it, live it,
Letting Christ each moment guide,
Till no soul on earth can doubt it,
Jesus for the whole world died!
