Tell me the stories of Jesus I love to hear;

Things I would ask Him to tell me if He were here;

Scenes by the wayside, tales of the sea,

Stories of Jesus, tell them to me.

 

Tell me the old, old story

Tell me the old, old story

Tell me the old, old story

Of Jesus and his love.

 

Sharing the stories of our lives: what helped us see

things that have formed our own gospel; what set us free

Changes in thinking, twists on the way

Stories that formed us: tell them today

 

We share our new, fresh stories

We share familiar stories

We share our good news stories

Of lives transformed by love.
