Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

183. 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.

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 Oh, how the world to evil allures me!
oh, 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]
