Representative Text

1 If some great burden bends you low,
Just tell Jesus, just tell Jesus;
His love will lighten it, I know;
Just tell Jesus, just tell Jesus.

Refrain:
Just whisper the name of this wonderful friend,
Rich showers of blessing to you he will send
And loving and faithful remain to the end;
Just tell Jesus, just tell Jesus.

2 If earthly friends forsake your side,
Just tell Jesus, just tell Jesus;
To none his friendship is denied;
Just tell Jesus, just tell Jesus. [Refrain]

3 If sin has caused your soul to roam,
Just tell Jesus, just tell Jesus;
His voice will safely guide you home;
Just tell Jesus, just tell Jesus. [Refrain]

4 O whatsoever you may need,
Just tell Jesus, just tell Jesus;
You’ll find in him a friend indeed;
Just tell Jesus, just tell Jesus. [Refrain]
