I Must Tell Jesus

I must tell Jesus all of my trials;
I cannot bear these burdens alone;
In my distress He kindly will help me;
He ever loves and cares for His own.

Refrain

I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!
I cannot bear my burdens alone;
I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!
Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.

I must tell Jesus all of my troubles;
He is a kind, compassionate friend;
If I but ask Him, He will deliver,
Make of my troubles quickly an end.

Refrain

Tempted and tried, I need a great Savior;
One Who can help my burdens to bear;
I must tell Jesus, I must tell Jesus;
He all my cares and sorrows will share.

Refrain

O how the world to evil allures me!
O how my heart is tempted to sin!
I must tell Jesus, and He will help me
Over the world the victory to win.

Refrain

This reminds me of a little song i sing to myself to remind myself to tell Jesus first as well. It's by the Wissman Family:
The answer's in the Bible
Take the time to work it out
Don't count on someone else
Most of all when you're in doubt
It always works for me
And it will work the same for you
The answer's in the Bible,
Take the time to work it through.

Wow, such beautiful words of encouragement. We all need to bring our care and worry to Jesus. Because we cannot bear them alone!

Amazing...thanks for sharing this song.
