My favorite hymn is Tell Me the Story of Jesus

It is old and beautiful and it brings me to tears.

Speaking of hymns, if I were going to write one, which I’m not, I would leave out the third verse. Why? So many song leaders leave the third verse out when leading. Look at How Great Thou Art. Is there a more beautiful verse than the third verse?

“And when I think of God, His son not sparing, Sent Him to die; I scare can take it in;
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing, He bled and died to take away my sin.”
