Representative Text

1 When the heart grows faint and weary,
Tell it all to Jesus,
When the way seems long and dreary
Tell it all to Jesus.

Refrain:
Tell it all to Jesus,
Tell it all to Jesus,
Let whate’er be your complaint,
Tell it all to Jesus.

2 If thy life is filled with sorrow,
Tell it all to Jesus,
If there dawns no bright tomorrow,
Tell it all to Jesus. [Refrain]

3 If some secret sin oppress thee,
Tell it all to Jesus,
If some fleeting joys distress thee,
Tell it all to Jesus. [Refrain]
