          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.

          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 know 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.

          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.

          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.

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