Tell Me the Story of Jesus

Pianist John Boyd plays one of his favorite hymns.

Boyd says, “I enjoy improvising on hymns. Earlier this summer, KJ Langlais at First Plymouth gave a homily that featured the hymn, “Tell Me the Story of Jesus.” I am including the words for the listener to hear how the music mirrors the lyrics. Thank you for inspiring this video, KJ. Thank you, Jeff Boyd, for recording and editing the video.”

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, 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.
Tell me the story so tender, clearer than ever I see,
Stay, let me weep while you whisper, Love paid the ransom for me.
Tell me the story of Jesus, write on my heart every word,
Tell me the story most precious, sweetest that ever was heard.
