TELL ME THE STORIES OF JESUS
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.
First let me hear how the children
Stood round his knee
And I shall fancy His blessing resting on me
Words full of kindness, deeds full of grace,
All in the lovelight of Jesus' face.
Tell me, in accents of wonder,
How rolled the sea,
Tossing the boat in a tempest on Galilee
And how the Master, ready and kind,
Chided the billows and hushed the wind.
Into the city I'd follow the childrens' band
Waving a branch of the palm tree
High in my hand One of his heralds, yes, I would sing
Loudest hosannas, Jesus is King!
Show me the scene in the garden,
Of bitter pain
And of the cross where my Saviour
For me was slain
And through the sadness, help me to see
How Jesus suffered for love of me.
Gladly I'd hear of His rising out of the grave
Living and strong and triumphant,
Mighty to save
And how He sends us all men to bring
Stories of Jesus, Jesus, their King
