I Love To Tell The Story

"I Love To Tell The Story"
By Alan Jackson

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 'tis true;
It satisfies my longings
As nothing else can do.

I love to tell the story,
'twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and his love.

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.

This is hymn is one of my favorite song and it's sang beautifully by Alan Jackson.
This hymn was written by Arabella Katherine Hankey back in the early 19th century. This simple song reflected alot on the poem which she wrote to dedicate her love for Jesus.

I was introduced to this song by my dad when I went back to Brunei for a week break last May. He was supposingly to lead a simple worship and singing on that particular Sunday and he decided to sing this song. I remembered very vividly as he went to grab his guitar, put on his reading glass, and strummed the strings to the tune of his hum. Wow... unbelievable! The music and the lyric is so beautifully matched!
I hope you too would enjoy hearing and watching this simple clip.
As you listen, I want to encourage you to reflect upon those many great great stories of Jesus done for many of us.

Enjoy :)
