Tell Me the Story of Jesus by Fanny Crosby

By Rev. Dean Beaty  6/9/08


“Tell Me the Story of Jesus,

     Write on my heart every word.

Tell me the story most precious,

     Sweetest that ever was heard.”


Fanny Crosby wrote this song,

To see His face I know she longed.

Her blind eyes were made to see,

As she heard of Calvary.


Told of Jesus’ works of love,

Why He left His home above,

And came to earth to die in shame,

That is why she loved His name.


“Love in that story so tender,

     Clearer than ever I see:

Stay, let me weep while you whisper,

     Love paid the ransom for me.”


Now, that is worship at its best,

As I leave my heart is blessed.

This will lead my heart to prayer.

When I see how much He cared.
