Lyrics

If the name of the Sav­ior
Is pre­cious to you,
If His care has been con­stant
And ten­der and true,
If the light of His pre­sence
Has bright­ened your way,
O will you not tell
Of your glad­ness to­day?

Refrain

O will you not tell it today?
Will you not tell it to­day?
If the light of His pre­sence
Has bright­ened your day
O will you not tell it to­day?

If your faith in the Sav­ior
Has brought its re­ward,
If a strength you have found
In the strength of your Lord,
If the hope of a rest
In His pa­lace is sweet,
O will you not, bro­ther,
The sto­ry repeat?

Refrain

If the souls all around you
Are liv­ing in sin,
If the Mas­ter has told you
To bid them come in,
If the sweet in­vi­tat­ion
They ne­ver have heard,
O will you not tell them
The cheer bring­ing word?

Refrain
