Tell Me the Stories of Jesus

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 277
Text: William H. Parker
Music: Frederick A. Challinor
Tune: STORIES OF JESUS, Meter: 84.84.54.54

1.	Tell me the stories of Jesus I love to hear; 
	things I would ask him to tell me if he were here: 
	scenes by the wayside, tales of the sea, 
	stories of Jesus, tell them to me. 

2.	First let me hear how the children stood round his knee, 
	and I shall fancy his blessing resting on me; 
	words full of kindness, deeds full of grace, 
	all in the lovelight of Jesus' face. 

3.	Into the city I'd follow the children's band, 
	waving a branch of the palm tree high in my hand; 
	one of his heralds, yes, I would sing 
	loudest hosannas, "Jesus is King!"
