558. I Must Tell Jesus

1 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.

2 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]

3 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]

4 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 vict'ry to win. [Refrain]
