1 Little ones are often sorry
For the naughty things they do;
Troubles reach us all, and worry
Little hearts, and big ones, too.
Then tell Jesus, then tell Jesus,
That’s the best thing we can do.

2 Jesus knows when we are tempted,
Jesus sees us when we fall;
Jesus died, and we’re exempted,
He was sorry for us all;
He’ll forgive us, He’ll forgive us,
If upon His name we call.

3 Let us tell Him all our trouble,
Tell Him we are sorry, too;
He will do us kindness double,
Help us to be good and true;
And forgive us, and forgive us,
Yes, O yes! and love us, too.

4 We will tell it all to Jesus,
All our want and all our woe;
None but Jesus can relieve us,
None but Jesus loves us so.
And to Jesus, and to Jesus,
Everyone is free to go.
