1 Tell me o’er and o’er again,
While the bells are ringing;
Tell me of the King of men,
Earth’s redemption bringing;
Tell me of the town of old,
Where a wondrous star of gold
Of the Savior’s coming told;
Tell me of the King.

Tell the story of the King,
Let the theme triumphant ring,
He who came our peace to bring,
Tell me of the King.

2 Tell me of the gilded rocks
Lit with sudden glory;
Tell me of the dreaming flocks
And the Christmas story;
Tell me o’er and o’er again,
How the watching shepherd men
Saw the star from vale and glen;
Tell me of the King. [Refrain]

3 Tell me how the angels sang
Joy to every nation;
Tell me how the chorus rang
Over all creation;
Tell, oh, tell the wondrous theme
Of the King of kings supreme,
Born the people to redeem;
Tell me of the King. [Refrain]
