As Philip ran up, he heard the Ethiopian reading from Isaiah the prophet. Do you understand what you’re reading? he asked. How can I, he said, unless someone explains it to me?@Acts 8:3031

O tell me more of Christ, my Savior;
On this glad theme dwell o’er and o’er;
His boundless grace, His saving favor,
His precious name, O tell me more!

Refrain

O tell me more! So much I need
His power to keep, His hand to lead;
O tell me more of Him I love,
Until I see His face above.

O tell me more of love’s sweet story,
If you would cheer and comfort me;
How Jesus wept, the King of glory,
Those tender tears of sympathy.

Refrain

O tell me more! How waves of sorrow
Shall hear His voice say, Peace, be still;
How after night, bright dawns the morrow,
To those who trust His blessèd will.

Refrain

O tell me more! And I repeating
The happy news, shall spread the joy;
Come, blessèd Lord, Thy work completing,
Till songs of praise our lips employ.

Refrain
