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.

Elisha Albright Hoffman was born May 7, 1839, in Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania to a minister named Francis Hoffman. At a young age, Elisha accepted Christ as his Savior. He attended the Philadelphia public schools, studied science, and then studied the classics at Union Seminary at the Evangelical Association. When he was 24, the Civil War had been raging for two years, and he enlisted as a Private in the Union Army on July 9, 1863 with Company A, 47th Infantry Regiment, Pennsylvania. He was discharged just over a month later on August 14, 1863, a couple years before the war ended.

About 1866, Elisha married Susan M Orwig, he was about 26 and she was about 22. He worked for the Evangelical Association Publishing House in Cleveland, Ohio, for 11 years. He was ordained by the Presbyterian Church in 1873, at the age of 34. Two years later in 1876, his wife, Susan died, leaving him with three young boys. He was never formally trained in music, but he wrote over 2, 000 hymns, providing both the words and the tune for the most of them. He assisted in compiling and editing 50 song books!

Some of these hymns he wrote are as follows:

“Are You Washed in the Blood, ” words

“Christ for Sin Atonement Made, ” words & music

“Down at the Cross, ” words

“Glory to His Name, ” words

“Have Thine Own Way Lord. ” words

Perfect hymn

In my dream before my father could die came to me and said son tell your troubles to Jesus you will be relieved.

And we joined in this hymn singing every stanzas little did I know that my father had informed the rest of the family to sing this hymn to send him off I ended up breaking because it was the same hymn in the dream. The dream got me when I was far at my work place yet father was at home at night as I reported on duty a call from my niece that father is gone made me recall this very hymn.

Thank you for this hymn

It is good to talk to the Lord. It is even more helpful when he speaks to us. I feel like the Lord spoke to me in this song. “And in my griefs with me he will blend” sometimes when we are going through a tough situation, all we can see is the situation (tunnel vision) but as we talk to our dear Lord he “blends” himself with us through our pouring ourselves out to him. His feeling becomes our feeling and his thought becomes our thought and although we are still in our grief somehow through our coming to the Lord and telling Him all, He is more real and our grief is less. “I must tell Jesus, he will enable, over the world the victory to win”
