1. Someone must tell the glad story,
The blessèd old story so true,
Of love and of wonderful glory,
O say will that someone be you?

Refrain
O say will that someone be you?
O say will that someone be you?
To tell the glad story of grace and of glory,
O say will that someone be you?
O say will that someone be you?
O say will that someone be you?
To tell the glad story of grace and of glory,
O say will that someone be you?

2. Someone must tell of a Savior,
To others across the deep blue,
Now waiting His love and His favor,
O say will that someone be you? [Refrain]

3. Someone must tell of the blessing
That comes with each morning so new,
The goodness of Jesus confessing,
O say will that someone be you? [Refrain]

4. Someone must tell of salvation,
Someone must to Jesus be true,
And carry; to each waiting nation
The story that always is new. [Refrain]
