I Love To Tell The Story

The song and lyrics for "I love To Tell The Story" originated from Katherine Hankey's Christian inspired two-part poem called "The Story Wanted" and "The Story Told". Another similarly titled hymn called "Tell Me The Old Old Story" also derived from her poem.  

Welcome! The lyrics to "I Love to Tell the Story" are below. Feel free to check out my new album of the same name as well as my version of this glorious song. Also, there are links to my two albums of hymns (with two different instrumental versions of "I Love to Tell the Story," one for acoustic guitar, and one for ukulele) on the "Store" page. And every song on this site is available on iTunes- just search for "Chip Mergott."

I Love To Tell The Story (Lyrics)

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 it's true; it satisfies my longings as nothing else can do. (Refrain) - 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. (Refrain).

I love to tell the story - Chip Mergott
