Tell me the old, old story

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.
  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.
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 any time of trouble,
  A comforter to me.
Tell me the same old story,
  When you have cause to fear
That this world’s empty glory
  Is costing me too dear;
And when the Lord’s bright glory
  Is dawning on my soul,
Tell me the old, old story:
  “Christ Jesus makes thee whole.”

As followers of Christ we have our story to tell others that changed our lives.

My husband's favorite song from years ago, and it was just played at his funeral since the singer had an emergency. My husband would have been thrilled

Heard this hymn last week. I have sharing the stanzas on my status. Unfortunately, modernism is diluting the true story of Jesus and his love.

This song came to mind tonight. How grateful I am to LOVE ❤️ the stories & the Bible. I’m so thankful that it is not a chore & I don’t need to force myself to pray, worship or read. Thank You Jesus!
