We’ve a Story to Tell ~ Hymn ~ H. Ernest Nichol

 

We’ve a Story to Tell

We’ve a story to tell to the nations,
That shall turn their hearts to the right,
A story of truth and mercy,
A story of peace and light,
A story of peace and light.

Refrain

For the darkness shall turn to dawning,
And the dawning to noonday bright;
And Christ’s great kingdom shall come on earth,
The kingdom of love and light.

We’ve a song to be sung to the nations,
That shall lift their hearts to the Lord,
A song that shall conquer evil
And shatter the spear and sword,
And shatter the spear and sword.

Refrain

We’ve a message to give to the nations,
That the Lord who reigns up above
Has sent us His Son to save us,
And show us that God is love,
And show us that God is love.

Refrain

We’ve a Savior to show to the nations,
Who the path of sorrow has trod,
That all of the world’s great peoples
Might come to the truth of God,
Might come to the truth of God.

Refrain

  1. Great picture of London!

    I like this line:

    We’ve a song to be sung to the nations,
    That shall lift their hearts to the Lord,

  2. Reading the words w/the tune in my head is actually more meaningful and enjoyable that singing in church with distractions (people doing things) thx for typing this old hymn. the service we attend now doesn’t sing enough of these hymns.
