Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Tell It All

Representative Text

1. Would you have the blessing
All along the way?
Tell your cares to Jesus
When to him you pray;
Never keep them from him
Though you think them small,
He will gladly listen,
Go and tell him all.

Tell it all to Jesus,
To him ever bring
All your care and worry,
Ev'ry little thing.

2. Ev'ry little trial,
Ev'ry little care,
All the little crosses
He will help you bear;
He will never chide you
If to him you bring
All your little troubles,
Ev'ry little thing. [Refrain]

3. Not the greatest trials
Hinder most you know,
Making daily progress
Painful, hard and slow;
'Tis the little troubles
Coming ev'ry day,
Causing fret and worry,
Driving peace away. [Refrain]

4. Take it all to Jesus
Those who trust his grace
Cannot be defeated
In the Christian race,
In those realms of glory
When we see the King,
We'll be glad we told him
Ev'ry little thing. [Refrain]
