Be not…ashamed of the testimony of our Lord.@2 Timothy 1:8

John M. Whyte, in The Finest of Wheat, edited by George D. Elderkin (Chicago, Illinois: Robert R. McCabe, 1890), number 98 (🔊 pdf nwc).

O, brother, have you told how the Lord forgave?
Let us hear you tell it over once again;
Thy coming to the cross, where He died to save,
Let us hear you tell it over once again.
Are you walking now in His blessèd light?
Are you cleansed from every guilty stain?
Is He your joy by day, and your song by night?
Let us hear you tell it over once again.

Refrain

Let us hear you tell it over,
Tell it over once again;
Tell the sweet and blessèd story,
It will help you on to glory,
Let us hear you tell it over once again.

When toiling up the way, was the Savior there?
Let us hear you tell it over once again;
Did Jesus bear you up in His tender care?
Let us hear you tell it over once again.
Never have you found such a friend as He,
Who can help you ’midst the toil and pain;
O all the world should hear what He’s done for thee;
Let us hear you tell it over once again.

Refrain

Was ever on your tongue such a blessèd theme?
Let us hear you tell it over once again;
’Tis ever sweeter far than the sweetest dream.
Let us hear you tell it over once again.
There are aching hearts in the world’s great throng,
Who have sought for rest and all in vain.
Hold Jesus up to them by your word and song;
Let us hear you tell it over once again.

Refrain

The battles you have fought, and the victories won,
Let us hear you tell it over once again;
’Twill help them on the way who have just begun,
Let us hear you tell it over once again.
We are striving now with the hosts of sin,
Soon with Christ our Savior we shall reign;
Ye ransomed of the Lord, try a soul to win;
Let us hear you tell it over once again.

Refrain
