156. I Love to Tell the Story

Text: Katherine Hankey, 1834-1911
Music: William G. Fischer, 1835-1912
Tune: HANKEY, Meter: 76.76 D with Refrain

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.  
Refrain:
	I love to tell the story, 
	'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)
