1 Have you something good to tell us,
My Christian friend, today?
Tell how the Lord has met you,
And helped you on your way.

Refrain:
Tell of the loving Saviour
Who keeps us day by day;
Oh, tell of the precious Saviour,—
‘Twill help us on our way.

2 Have you something good to tell us
Of Jesus kind and true?
Of hopes that reach to heaven?
Of mercies ever new? [Refrain]

3 We are waiting now to hear you
Proclaim his grace so free;
Speak out and tell each sinner
“His love has pardoned me.” [Refrain]

Owens, Priscilla Jane, was born July 21, 1829, of Scotch and Welsh descent, and is now (1906) resident at Baltimore, where she is engaged in public-school work. For 50 years Miss Owen has interested herself in Sunday-school work, and most of her hymns were written for children's services. Her hymn in the Scotch Church Hymnary, 1898, "We have heard a joyful sound" (Missions), was written for a Sunday-school Mission Anniversary, and the words were adapted to the chorus "Vive le Roi" in the opera The Huguenots.
