Tell Me the Story of Jesus


cffblog6.jpgFebruary 3, 2018 (Saturday)

The greatest story ever told is the account of Jesus laying aside his divinity, humbling himself and becoming a human being. He was the "Lamb of God" who gave his life on Calvary's cross so that you and I could be saved. Stay. Let me weep while you whisper, "Love paid the ransom for me."

TELL ME THE STORY OF JESUS
Fanny Crosby
John R. Sweney
1880

Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word.
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.
Tell how the angels in chorus,
Sang as they welcomed His birth.
"Glory to God in the highest!
Peace and good tidings to earth."

Refrain:
Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word.
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.

Fasting alone in the desert,
Tell of the days that are past.
How for our sins He was tempted,
Yet was triumphant at last.
Tell of the years of His labor,
Tell of the sorrow He bore.
He was despised and afflicted,
Homeless, rejected and poor.

Refrain

Tell of the cross where they nailed Him,
Writhing in anguish and pain.
Tell of the grave where they laid Him,
Tell how He liveth again.
Love in that story so tender,
Clearer than ever I see.
Stay, let me weep while you whisper,
Love paid the ransom for me.

Refrain
