625. Tell Me the Old, Old Story

1 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.

Refrain:
Tell me the old, old story,
tell me the old, old story,
tell me the old, old story,
of Jesus and his love.

2 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. [Refrain]

3 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." [Refrain]
