This week's selection of a song in memory of my Granddaddy is "I'd Tell the World." This song has been around since the late 1950's and has an inspiring message. Granddaddy began his walk with the Lord on April 15th, 1932. During the next 76 years, he never hesitated to tell someone about Jesus. Family, friend, or stranger...no matter the topic of conversation...Granddaddy could always relate the subject to something about the Lord. It's not surprising that he was a great preacher.
I could not find any audio of this song to upload, so please just reflect on the words as an encouragement to share your faith with others.
I'd Tell the World
Words and Music By: C.S. Grogan
If I could count my blessings and name them one by one,I'd write a book so everyone could read;
I'd start each line with "Glory," and end with "Praise the Lord,"I'd tell how Jesus fills my every need.
I'm thru with sinful pleasures, I've left them all behind,They only give contentment for a while;
I gave them up for Jesus; He means so much to me,While ages roll, His love will still abide.
If I could speak like angels, and have a million yearsOn earth to talk about my Saviour's love,
When time for me had ended, and Jesus called me home,I'd still have much to tell in heaven above.
Refrain:I'd tell the world how Jesus saved me, saved my soul,
I'd tell the world He set me free and made me whole;Oh yes, if I could count my blessings and name them one by one,
I'd tell the world what Jesus is to me.
On Sunday, there will also be a God STOP moment about this song so please visit Carrie at Thoughts, Ponderings, and Musings.
