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.
Harry Plantinga

621. 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 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)

3 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)
