Representative Text

1 Go and tell Jesus when burdened by sin;
Ask Him for pardon, and cleansing within;
Gladly He’ll aid a new life to begin;
Go and tell Jesus today.

Go and tell Jesus,
Go and tell Jesus,
He will take every burden away.
Him you will find so tender and kind,
Then go and tell Jesus today.

2 Go and tell Jesus when troubled with care;
Go when your load seems so heavy to bear:
Surely He’ll hear, and will answer your pray’r;
Go and tell Jesus today. [Refrain]

3 Go and tell Jesus when sorrows so deep,
Trouble in day-light and haunt you in sleep,
Sorrows that cause you to mourn and to weep,
Go and tell Jesus today. [Refrain]

4 Go and tell Jesus whatever you need,
He will to every petition give heed,
Prove Himself ever your true friend indeed,
Go and tell Jesus today. [Refrain]
