Chorus:

I love to tell the story!
'Twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.

Verse 1:

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.

Chorus:

I love to tell the story!
'Twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.

Verse 2:

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.

Chorus:

I love to tell the story!
'Twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.

Verse 3:

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.

Chorus:

I love to tell the story!
'Twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.
