The story behind the song is the story of Fannie Crosby and the blind hymn writer’s love for Jesus and longing for THE STORY of her Savior to be told. The song describes the angels singing at His birth. His earthly ministry and the “years of His labor” bearing sorrow, affliction and rejection. Verse three tells of His sacrifice and how His “Love paid the ransom for me”.
Let’s join with Fanny Crosby and “Tell The Story” through the words of the song as a witness to the lost and encouragement to believers as we remember what Jesus did for us.
