Words by A. Catherine Hankey

Ezekiel 3:11
"And go, get thee to them of the captivity, unto the children of thy people,
and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; whether they
will hear, or whether they will forbear."

          Tell me the old, old story, of unseen things above,
          Of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love;
          Tell me the story simply, as to a little child,
          For I am weak and weary, And helpless and defiled.

            Chorus
            Tell me the old, old story,
            Tell me the old, old story,
            Tell me the old, old story,
            Of Jesus and His Love.

          Tell me the story slowly, That I may take it in,
          That wonderful redemption, God's remedy for sin;
          Tell me the story often, For I forget so soon,
          The early dew of morning, Has passed away at noon.

            Chorus
            Tell me the old, old story,
            Tell me the old, old story,
            Tell me the old, old story,
            Of Jesus and His Love.

          Tell me the story softly, with earnest tones and grave;
          Remember I'm the sinner whom Jesus came to save;
          Tell me the story always, if you would really be,
          In anytime of trouble, a comforter to me.

            Chorus
            Tell me the old, old story,
            Tell me the old, old story,
            Tell me the old, old story,
            Of Jesus and His Love.

          Tell me the same old story, when you have cause to fear,
          That this world's empty glory, is costing me too dear;
          Yes, and when that world's glory, is dawning on my soul,
          Tell me the old, old story, Christ Jesus makes thee whole.

            Chorus
            Tell me the old, old story,
            Tell me the old, old story,
            Tell me the old, old story,
            Of Jesus and His Love.
