Tell Them

Today the Lord was calling in a voice so sweet and low

He said “Son, there’s something special that everyone should know.

It’s really not a secret.  It’s written in my book.

But there are way too many who never take a look.”

 

I asked the Lord how I could help to get to everyone

This world is so enormous.  I’d never get it done

He said “My child it’s simple, just start with that one there

And one by one you will surely make this world aware.

 

So I said “I’ll do it Lord, I’ll take your message out

I’ll speak it in the marketplace.  I’ll travel all about.

Just let me know the words that I should share today”

And then I heard His gentle voice say

 

“Tell them I love them with an everlasting love

Tell them I love them, and I want them here above

I sent my Son to take their place

They’re covered by my endless grace

Tell them I love them, and that should be enough”

 

I said “My Lord, I know it’s true that you have love for me

This world is very skeptical because of what they see

The violence and suff’ring seem to get worse every day

There’s many who blame you for this – then what should I say.”

 

“Tell them I love them with an everlasting love

Tell them I love them, and I want them here above

I sent my Son to take their place

They’re covered by my endless grace

Tell them I love them, and that should be enough”

 

And then He whispered in my ear that many just don’t know

Because we’ve turned our churches into places for a show

The truth that they must make the choice of heaven or of hell

Is something that few preachers are still willing to tell

 

He said “I need the laborers to get out in the field

The harvest is awaiting, and they need someone real

To tell them of this love I have for every single one

I’ve done all that I can do – I sent my only Son”

 

Okay, I got the message Lord, the gospel is enough

I’ll go out into all the world and tell them of your love

That Jesus died to take our sins and wash them all away

That message is more powerful than any words I say

 

I’ll tell them that you love them with an everlasting love

I’ll tell them that you love them, and you want them up above

You sent your Son to take their place

They’re covered by your endless grace

I’ll tell them that you love them, and that should be enough”
