1. When the cares of life oppress you
And the load is hard to bear;
When your troubles great distress you
And there’s none who seems to care;
Talk to Jesus, He will bless you
And your every burden share;
It is glory to talk with Him.

It is glory to talk with Him every day;
It is glory to walk with Him all the way;
My path is never dim as I walk and talk with Him,
It is glory to talk with Him.

2. Trials great will overtake you
In this sinful world below;
Jesus never will forsake you,
If to Him in faith you go;
Storms of life can never shake you,
If His keeping grace you know;
It is glory to talk with Him. [Refrain]

3. He will never tire of hearing
When to Him you pray or plead;
You will find His grace so cheering,
In the trying hour of need;
And your sky will soon be clearing,
For His power is great indeed;
It is glory to talk with Him. [Refrain]

4. All the way from earth to glory
With the Savior you may go;
Telling o’er and o’er the story,
Letting happy praises flow;
Tell it to the young and hoary,
That His love they all may know;
It is glory to talk with Him. [Refrain]
