I Love To Tell The Story

I love to tell the story of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory,
of Jesus and His love.
I love to tell the story,
because I know 'tis true;
It satisfies my longings as nothing else can do.
I love to tell the story,
'twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.

I love to tell the story; more wonderful it seems
Than all the golden fancies of all our golden dreams.
I love to tell the story, it did so much for me;
And that is just the reason I tell it now to thee.
I love to tell the story,
'twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.

I love to tell the story; 'tis pleasant to repeat
what seems,Each time I tell it,
more wonderfully sweet.
I love to tell the story, for some have never heard
The message of salvation from God's own holy Word.
I love to tell the story,
'twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.

I love to tell the story, for those who know it best
Seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest.
And when, in scenes of glory, I sing the new, new song,
'Twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long.
I love to tell the story,
'twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.


We sang this last night at our 'function'. First time I've heard it or sung it in years. Since I had just written my blog about how far Troy and I have come in the last year, I thought of it in a new light. "The Story" isn't the flannelgraph story of Jesus with the fishes and loaves or even healing a blind man. "The Story" is MY story -- of unseen things above; Of Jesus and His glory' Of Jesus and His love. I do have a story of God's grace and healing and God's power in my life. And I do love to tell it. I finally listened carefully to the last verse and realized how powerful it is.

And when, in scenes of glory, I sing the new, new song,
'Twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long.
I love to tell the story,
'twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story of Jesus and His
love.

God really can do some amazing things. Things that we can't even possibly begin to imagine how He did it.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I'm ready to start writing again!
