Published in 7 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Are you burdened, worn and weary,
Heeding still the tempter's call?
Is your life each day more dreary?
Just tell Jesus, tell Him all.

Refrain:
Just tell Jesus, tell Him all,
Trials great and trials small;
He will share them, freely bear them,
Just tell Jesus, tell Him all.

2 Would you have your past forgiven,
And be lifted, if you fall?
Trust the Friend whose side was riven,
Just tell Jesus, tell Him all. [Refrain]

3 Are you needing one to guide you,
Shelter when the storms appall,
Someone who would stay beside you?
Just tell Jesus, tell Him all. [Refrain]
