Representative Text

1 Why not tell your ev’ry care to Jesus,
Ev’ry trial, ev’ry sorrow of your heart?
He’s the one and all-sufficient Saviour,
He, alone, has healing balm for ev’ry smart.

Refrain:
Then why not tell Him, tell Him all?
Oh why not tell the Saviour all?
For He alone can understand our trials,
Why not tell the Saviour all?

2 Oh, how many hearts are bowed with sorrow,
Just because they do not tell Him all their need;
Oh, how many carry needless burdens,
While the Saviour waits to be a friend indeed. [Refrain]

3 He will satisfy the soul that trusts Him,
And will banish ev’ry cloud of doubt and fear;
Thro’ the storm and tempest He will guide us,
With His tender love will comfort, bless and cheer. [Refrain]
