Tell Me the Old, Old Story

Tell me the old, old story of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love.
Tell me the story simply, as to a little child,
For I am weak and weary, and helpless and defiled.

Tell me the story slowly, that I may take it in--
That wonderful redemption, God's remedy for sin.
Tell me the story often, for I forget so soon;
The "early dew" of morning has passed away at noon.

Tell me the story softly, with earnest tones and grave;
Remember, I'm the sinner whom Jesus came to save.
Tell me the story always, if you would really be,
In any time of trouble, a comforter to me.

Tell me the same old story when you have cause to fear
That this world's empty glory is costing me too dear.
Yes, and when that world's glory is dawning on my soul,
Tell me the old, old story: "Christ Jesus makes thee whole."

-- Arabella Catherine Hankey

Greetings from Wordwise Hymns. It was Katherine Hankey's fine gospel song that brought me to your site this morning, as I posted an article on it myself. But I took a little tour, and enjoyed the wide variety of articles that you've included. Keep up the good work. And God bless.
