Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

11417. Tell It To Jesus

1 Tell it to Jesus, He understands thee,
Reads all the secret intents of thy heart;
Foes may misjudge, and friends may mistake thee,
He will not deal with thee but as thou art.

Refrain:
Tell it to Jesus, He understands thee,
What is thy gain, and what is thy loss;
While thou art His, no harm can befall thee,
Tell out thy heart at the foot of His cross.

2 Tell it to Jesus, He understands thee,
Knows all thy sorrows and sees all thy tears;
Knows all the hidden powers that withstand thee,
Knows all thy tremblings, doubts and thy fears. [Refrain]

3 Tell it to Jesus, He understands thee,
He can explain every mystery of life;
He can unravel tangles that try thee,
He can speak peace midst thy turmoil and strife. [Refrain]

4 Tell it to Jesus, He understands thee,
Seeks by His Spirit to perfect thy soul;
Sorrows and trials He sends to refine thee,
Tell him thy case, not in part, but in whole. [Refrain]

5 Tell it to Jesus, He understands thee,
Hide not thy faults, excuse not thy sin;
For in the day of account He will greet thee,
Not as thou art from without, but within. [Refrain]
