Hey, It’s Easter Morning! “Tell Me the Story of Jesus!”

I got up this Easter morning and enjoyed a wonderful time of Bible reading, reflection, worship and prayer. Easter is always a time for me of rehearsing and reflecting on “the wonderful story of Jesus” – beginning to end – from His coming to our earth in Bethlehem to His promise to come again. It includes His sinless, awesome life, His ministry and teaching, but also His death, burial, resurrection and ascension to the Heavenly Father’s right hand! A wonderful story! A life-transforming story! Everyone needs to hear it! We all profit from reflecting upon it!

As I did that again this Easter morning an old ageless hymn, written by Fanny Crosby came to mind… “Tell Me the Story of Jesus.” Here are the lyrics… And I’ve also posted a link to a YouTube of Carmen presenting the song and its story to a mixed audience … children, youth, adults and older adults… Hey we all need the reminder! Enjoy!

1. Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word;
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.
Tell how the angels in chorus,
Sang as they welcomed His birth,
“Glory to God in the highest!
Peace and good tidings to earth.”

Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word;
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.

2. Fasting alone in the desert,
Tell of the days that are past,
How for our sins He was tempted,
Yet was triumphant at last.
Tell of the years of His labor,
Tell of the sorrow He bore;
He was despised and afflicted,
Homeless, rejected and poor.

3. Tell of the cross where they nailed Him,
Writhing in anguish and pain;
Tell of the grave where they laid Him,
Tell how He liveth again.
Love in that story so tender,
Clearer than ever I see;
Stay, let me weep while you whisper,
“Love paid the ransom for me.”

4. Tell how He’s gone back to heaven,
Up to the right hand of God:
How He is there interceding
While on this earth we must trod.
Tell of the sweet Holy Spirit
He has poured out from above;
Tell how He’s coming in glory
For all the saints of His love.
