I Must Tell Jesus

Words and music by Elisha A. Hoffman
1893

1 Peter 5:7
"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."

I must tell Jesus all of my trials;
I cannot bear these burdens alone;
In my distress He kindly will help me;
He ever loves and cares for His own.

Refrain
I must tell Jesus!  must tell Jesus!
I cannot bear my burdens alone;
I must tell Jesus!  must tell Jesus!
Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.

I must tell Jesus all of my troubles;
He is a kind, compassionate friend;
If I but ask Him, He will deliver,
Make of my troubles quickly an end.

Refrain
I must tell Jesus!  must tell Jesus!
I cannot bear my burdens alone;
I must tell Jesus!  must tell Jesus!
Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.

Tempted and tried, I need a great Savior;
One Who can help my burdens to bear;
I must tell Jesus, I must tell Jesus;
He all my cares and sorrows will share.

Refrain
I must tell Jesus!  must tell Jesus!
I cannot bear my burdens alone;
I must tell Jesus!  must tell Jesus!
Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.

Oh how the world to evil allures me!
Oh how my heart is tempted to sin!
I must tell Jesus, and He will help me
Over the world the victory to win.

Refrain
I must tell Jesus! must tell Jesus!
I cannot bear my burdens alone;
I must tell Jesus! must tell Jesus!
Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.
