Our Redeemer died to save us
On the cross of Calvary,
Suffered there that He might purchase
Endless life for you and me;
Tell to all the world the story
Of His wondrous sacrifice;
Tell them of His risen glory,
King of earth and paradise.

Refrain

Tell the blessèd story
To the sons of men;
Tell the blessèd story
O’er and o’er again.

Tell of Jesus on the mountain,
Speaking to the multitude,
Preaching there the blessèd Gospel,
While He gave them earthly food;
Tell how winds and waves obeyed Him,
Owning thus His majesty,
When He stilled the angry tempest
On the Sea of Galilee.

Refrain

Tell them all the words of comfort
Spoken by His loving voice,
Of His tender consolation,
Bidding troubled hearts rejoice;
Tell them of the living waters,
Flowing to refresh the soul,
And the golden crown that waits us
When at last we reach the goal.

Refrain
