Telling our stories

Original: Verse 1 Author: William H. Parker; Chorus: Fanny J Crosby.

Verse 2 & chorus 2: Bronwyn Angela White (2012)

Music arranged by John W Peterson—Easter Cantata Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Tell me the stories of Jesus I love to hear;
Things I would ask Him to tell me if He were here;
Scenes by the wayside, tales of the sea,
Stories of Jesus, tell them to me.

Tell me the old, old story
Tell me the old, old story
Tell me the old, old story
Of Jesus and his love.

Sharing the stories of our lives:
what helped us see
things that have formed our own gospel;
what set us free
Changes in thinking, twists on the way
Stories that formed us: tell them today

We share our new, fresh stories
We share familiar stories
We share our good news stories
Of lives transformed by love.
