1. 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 old, old story,

Tell me the old, old story,

Tell me the old, old story,

Of Jesus and His love.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Tell me the same old story,

When you have cause to fear

That this world’s empty glory

Is costing me too dear;

And when the Lord’s bright glory

Is dawning on my soul,

Tell me the old, old story:

“Christ Jesus makes thee whole.”

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
