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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Just tell it to Jesus, when burdens oppress,
Tell it to Him! Tell it to Him!
When troubles are many and worries distress,
Tell it, O soul, to Him.

Refrain:
Just tell it to Jesus,
Whatever betide,
In joy or in sorrow,
He walketh beside,
Thy Saviour, thy Helper,
Thy Friend true and tried,
Then tell it, O soul to Him.

2 Just tell it to Jesus, when pathways are drear,
Tell it to Him! Tell it to Him!
To thought of His presence will calm ev’ry fear,
Tell it, O soul, to Him. [Refrain]

3 Just tell it to Jesus, the song or the sigh,
Tell it to Him! Tell it to Him!
In joy or in sorrow the Saviour is nigh,
Tell it, O soul, to Him. [Refrain]

4 Just tell it to Jesus, when tempests are wild,
Tell it to Him! Tell it to Him!
Tho’ storms beat around thee, He loveth His child,
Tell it, O soul, to Him. [Refrain]
