621. I Must Tell Jesus

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

2 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)

3 O how the world to evil allures me!
O how my heart is tempted to sin!
I must tell Jesus, and he will help me
over the world the victory to win. (Refrain)
