Tell Me the Old, Old Story  Misc. Gospel

[C]Tell me the old, old [F]st[C]ory of [Am]unseen things [G7]above,
Of [C]Jesus and His [F]glory, of [C]Jesus [G7]and His [C]love.
[G7]Tell me the story [C]simply, as [D7]to a little [G]child,
For [C]I am weak and [F]weary, and [C]helpless [G]and de[C]filed.


Chorus:
[C]Tell me the old, old [F]sto[C]ry, [G7]tell me the old, old stor[C]y,
Tell me the old, [C7]old s[F]tory, of Je[C]sus [G7]and His [C]love.

Tell me the story slowly, that I may take it in,
That wonderful redemption, God’s remedy for sin.
Tell me the story often, for I forget so soon;
The early dew of morning has passed away at noon.

Chorus

Tell me the story softly, with earnest tones and grave;
Remember I’m the sinner whom Jesus came to save.
Tell me the story always, if you would really be,
In any time of trouble, a comforter to me.

Chorus

Tell me the same old story when you have cause to fear
That this world’s empty glory is costing me too dear.
Yes, and when that world’s glory is dawning on my soul,
Tell me the old, old story: “Christ Jesus makes thee whole.”

Chorus
