<poem>
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 could do. Refrain I love to tell the stroy, 'Twill be my theme in glory, To tell the old, old story Of Jesus and his love.

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. Refrain

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 Refrain

4.

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. Refrain

Amen
