‘I Love to Tell the Story’ (Ernie Ford)

We had this hymn from Alan Jackson a few days ago; let’s hear it now from Tennessee Ernie Ford. An old Sunday school favorite–I Love to Tell the Story.

If you’re new here, let me tell you: we love to post hymns requested by readers. Any and all readers! It’s one of the reasons why we come together here.

‘I Love to Tell the Story’

An old Sunday school favorite, I Love to Tell the Story, sung by Alan Jackson–and is that a tear in his eye? I think it is.

This was a Sunday school favorite–I Love to Tell the Story. And watch Alan Jackson closely. Are those tears on his cheeks? I think they are.

I was so impressed by the way they sang Blessed Assurance, I looked for more hymns by the Harpeth Gospel Quartet and found this–I Love to Tell the Story, an old Sunday school favorite. Kate Hankey wrote it in 1866. Background sets by the hand of God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.

Well, I managed to fail in my first attempt to provide a hymn for Tuesday morning–which, if I don’t fail again, will be this morning, while you’re reading this… Oh, bother.

Here’s Alan Jackson with I Love to Tell the Story.

‘I Love to Tell the Story’

This is another of my favorite hymns from way back, in Sunday school: I Love to Tell the Story. Alan Jackson has a nice, mellow way of singing it.

Another Sunday school favorite, I Love to Tell the Story. I can still see Mrs. Raleigh seated at the piano (she was also the superintendent), still hear her playing this, and us kids singing it, soon to go on to the secondary Sunday school department (no more sandbox!)…

I like the way Alan Jackson sings it, rich and mellow, making it ring true.

Beautiful, ‘I Love to Tell the Story’

This is another Sunday school favorite: I Love to Tell the Story, written by Arabella Hankey in 1868 and sung gorgeously by the Harpeth Gospel Choir. Amazing, what trained human voices can do in praise of the Lord!

‘I Love to Tell the Story’ (Alan Jackson)

Every word is clear, every note is pure, in Alan Jackson’s rendition of this well-loved old hymn, I Love to Tell the Story. Brings back fond memories of Sunday school. But the best thing about these old hymns is that they aren’t just memories–they’re still here today. Even as God is always here.

‘I Love to Tell the Story’

It’s not only the greatest story ever told. It’s also the most important story ever told–of Jesus and His love.

I don’t know who these singers are, but they’re pretty amazing.
