If I could tell of Jesus as I know Him,
My Redeemer who has brightened all my way,
If I could tell how precious is His presence
I am sure that you would make Him yours today.

Refrain

Could I tell it, could I tell it,
How the sunshine of His presence lights my way,
I would tell it, I would tell it,
And I’m sure that you would make Him yours today.

If I could only tell you how He loves you,
And if we could thro’ the lonely garden go;
If I could tell His dying pain and pardon,
You would worship at His wounded feet, I know.

Refrain

If I could tell how sweet will be His welcome
In that home whose wondrous beauty ne’er was told,
And tell you how He waits and longs to save you,
You would seek Him, and abide within His fold.

Refrain

But I can never tell Him as I know Him,
Human tongue can never tell of love divine;
I only can entreat you to accept Him;
Come and know the joy and peace forever mine.

Refrain
