I must tell Jesus all of my trials

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.
  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.
I must tell Jesus all of my troubles;
He is a kind, compassionate Friend;
If I but ask Him, He will deliver,
And in my griefs with me He will blend.
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,
O how the world to evil allures me!
O how my heart is tempted to sin!
I must tell Jesus; He will enable
Over the world the vic’try to win.

In times like this, I need the Savior now then before. I have been offered an admission at Europe (UK) to study Masters program and I am now looking for scholarship but no where to go. But as the refrain of the hymn goes " I must tell Jesus, Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.

I know very well that with the prayers of love ones, everything shall be well.

I love this old hymn I heard as a child. I have belivied in Jesus as our only hope and Savior, The problem is emotional an relational problems where no answer seems to come. Ex.a daughter who has not spoken to me in 10 yrs. For no reason and the pain that causes. Lots of others like me I'm sure.

I woke up this morning with this song going over in my mind. My daughter has court today and I don't know how it will turn out. I have placed her in His hand and I pray His will into her life. More than anything I pray she will be saved. When I got up hearing this song I couldn't wait to get into His presence and tell Him I love Him and I know she is in the hands of a just God no matter the outcome.

I am in a rehab facility recuperating from surgery. I had lung cancer and my doctor had to remove the upper left lobe of my lung. One of my favorite caregivers came in this morning singing this song in her heart. It is beautiful and life changing. I was worried because I was getting a roommate after having been alone for 5 days. We said a little prayer and she left me feeling so good. Long story short I got a great roommate and to my surprise I am going home tomorrow. Praise God and thank You Jesus.

The song inspired a lot of hope in me. I have a listener closer to me than a brother, wife, husband, name it. Jesus I love You more...Amen.

I'm so thankful for the hymns inspired by God. A dear woman sang this at a previous church my husband pastored. There have been times when I have been completely overwhelmed with trials and heartaches, and even if you have a loving family, sometimes there is absolutely no one on earth who can understand us like our Lord. He's the One who knows our thoughts even before we think them and our words while they are still on our tongue, and what a comfort to know He is a friend who is closer than a brother. When it seems dark, Christ is my light...I must tell Jesus!!


Murfreesboro, Tennessee (TN), United States

Just out if the blue this song came to mind today February 8th 2016. I'm so very thankful to have had parents who passed the face to me and my siblings. They took us to church and in church I learned hymns and I so miss them in the modern day church today. Though the music is good, there is just something about these old hymns. I hope and pray that I will never forget them, and that I can pass them down to my children.

When in prayer or Bible study songs come into my mind and heart. When I was young our church sang many hymns and the Lord brings them to my mind. Today it was this song. I am 74 now so sometimes don't remember more than a line. Thankfully we can look them up on line even if it is just a phrase. I have Trigeminal Neuralgia a painful condition and the Lord brought this to me "I cannot bear my burdens alone - I must tell Jesus"

I was reminded of this song yesterday by sweet saint...I woke up with it this morning in my head! I had to come find it and listen to it.
