Full Text

1 Go and tell Jesus, O desolate heart,
Go and tell Jesus how weary thou art;
Weary of trying without him to live,
Seeking for comfort the world cannot give.

Refrain:
Go and tell Jesus,—
Tell him how weary thou art,
Go, thy Saviour is waiting,
Waiting to comfort thy heart.

2 Go and tell Jesus, so ready to hear,
Whisper thy sorrow alone in his ear;
Long hast thou grieved him, but still he is kind;
Ask, he will give thee; go seek thou and find. [Refrain]

3 Narrow the gate but a light thou wilt see
Shining above it, and shining for thee;
Go, and, believing, acknowledge thy sin;
Knock, he will open and welcome thee in. [Refrain]

4 Go and tell Jesus thy soul is oppressed,
Go and tell Jesus ‘tis longing for rest,
Helpless, dependent, bend low at his throne,
Clinging by faith to his merits alone. [Refrain]
