Hymn & Scripture Challenge #16 / I Love to Tell the Story!

Hello to all my friends and hope you are having a wonderful Monday.  I have not posted lately as I have been spending time with my brother in the hospital.  He is not doing well at all and every time they can get him pretty much stable, something else comes up.  He is now in IMU and everyday is a struggle.  I only worked one day last week, but am going to try and work this week as I have some dead lines.  Please say a prayer for my brother.  He is a special person, has down syndrome.  We have been blessed to have him with us for 63 years.  The doctor said he has lived a lot longer than his life expectancy, so God has blessed us.  That is one of the reasons "I love to tell the story" of God's greatness and mercy and love.
I took my computer with me and had a chance to get this done while waiting to visit my brother.  I just love this hymn and remember singing it often as a young girl.
I especially love the first verse as it tells exactly how I feel.
I love to tell the story
  Of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory,
  Of Jesus and His love.
I love to tell the story,
  Because I know ’tis true;
It satisfies my longings
  As nothing else can do.
When I am reading the Bible there are times that just the reading will comfort me and speak to me as nothing else can do.  Especially during this time in my life.  And, I know that it is true beyond a shadow of a doubt.  And then the third verse really brings it all together.
I love to tell the story;
  ’Tis pleasant to repeat
What seems each time I tell it,
  More wonderfully sweet.
I love to tell the story;
  For some have never heard
The message of salvation
  From God’s own holy Word.
