Inspiring Lyrics--"I Love to Tell the Story"
Puppyfoot on 09/03/2008
|The tune for "I Love to Tell the Story," a Christian hymn, was written by A. Katherine Hankey (1834-1911). When recovering from a serious illness, Kate, then 30 years old, wrote a lengthy poem about the life of Jesus Christ. The poem was divided into two fifty-verse sections. Adapting words from the poem's first section, she later wrote "Tell Me the Old, Old Story," a classic hymn. From the verses in the second part of her poem, which was written later that same year, one may find the words to "I Love to Tell the Story." This Kerblunk is taken from three verses of this hymn.|
AN IMPORTANT NOTE: I realize that many hymns have different versions of lyrics because they have been revised over the years. If you feel that any of the "wrong" answers on this quiz are actually right and can send me information verifying this, I will gladly consider changing the answers. Thanks for your help.
