​Got to Tell the Story

This song is by Don Francisco and appears on the album Brother of the Son (1976).

Saul left for Damascus breathing murder and hate
With a handful of warrants I suspected his fate
He met the Lord on the highway, turned his life all around
He spent the rest of his days telling everyone all about the Saviour he'd found

He had to tell the story
Jesus set him free
Give God the glory
For the victory
Shouting hallelujah
The whole day long
Singing over and over
Salvation's song

Now a man named Cornelius was a soldier of Rome
He sent a message to Peter to come and preach at his home
The Holy Spirit descended on everyone in the crowd
Everybody was speakin' in tongues and praying and shoutin' out loud.

He had to tell the story
Jesus set him free
Give God the glory
For the victory
Shouting hallelujah
The whole day long
Singing over and over
Salvation's song

I was bound by Satan but Jesus set me free
Filled me up with His Spirit for all eternity
Gave me decent direction, took the weight of my load
Gave me so much joy in my heart
I feel like I'm going to explode.

He had to tell the story
Jesus set him free
Give God the glory
For the victory
Shouting hallelujah
The whole day long
Singing over and over
Salvation's song
