Kate Hankey (1866) / New Arrangement By Steve Snider

lyrics

1. I love to tell the story
Of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory,
Of Jesus and his love.
I love to tell the story,
Because I know its true;
It satisfies my longings
As nothing else would do.
I love to tell the story,
'Twill be my theme in glory
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.

2. I love to tell the story;
More wonderful it seems
Than all the golden fancies
Of all our golden dreams.
I love to tell the story,
It did so much for me;
And that is just the reason
I tell it now to thee.
I love to tell the story,
'Twill be my theme in glory
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.

3. I love to tell the story;
'Tis pleasant to repeat
What seems, each time I tell it,
More wonderfully sweet.
I love to tell the story,
For some have never heard
The message of salvation
From God's own holy word.
I love to tell the story,
'Twill be my theme in glory
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.

4. I love to tell the story;
For those who know it best
Seem hungering and thirsting
To hear it, like the rest,
And when, in scenes of glory,
I sing the new, new song,
'Twill be the old, old story,
That I have loved so long.
I love to tell the story,
'Twill be my theme in glory
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.

about

Home Grown Hymns Wentzville, Missouri

I began to play guitar in my early teens. Having grown up in the Midwest USA, I was exposed early to bluegrass music and found that I was drawn to it (I do however enjoy most all music).

By my late teen's and early twenty's, I joined a bluegrass band and begin playing at small local venues. For most of my adult life, I have played either guitar, mandolin or banjo in church services.
