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.

Only Jesus nobody else. I love You Master. You know my weakness, my burdens and in times of trouble I ran to Thee. You the only one that can help and make me feel safer! Yes Lord only You.



Earnestness brought me here. sometimes I wonder the life of the people who wrote hymns.. very touching


Port Harcourt, Nigeria

I just have to believe God in this song, that even as I'm telling him my adversities he will hearken to me. For I choose Him as a friend who knows all my flaws and can still help. Six years on trial to have access into university but to no avail. God is too big to lose my trust on. I shall wait till the end.


Luzerne, MI, United States

It’s Lent; 1st Sunday; Already my Ash Wednesday vows to refrain from certain behaviors and thoughts for 40 days have foundered. Already I am ashamed of myself.

Jesus in the desert suffers 40 days of insidious attacks on his thinking and appetites: He prayed and meditated on the word.

The words of this song came back into my mind this morning out of nowhere, suddenly, when I just wrote in my notebook that in these moments of temptation, Jesus alone can help me. I get so sick of myself and my scant ability to resist anything for more than a day or two; really weak!

My mind recovered both the tune and the chorus of this hymn from back in a time when I walked closer with the Light.

I must tell Jesus, I MUST tell Jesus. Man l have just got to keep these words in my heart. I cannot bear these burdens alone.

The writer of this song was touched by God.



Encouraged by the comments here. Praying this evening and the Spirit brought this song to mind. Like many others I googled it to find all the lyrics and here the sweet refrain. Jesus you are so precious to me!


St Paul, MN, United States

My song.


Everett, Washington, United States

I love this hymn. This morning I awoke with it on my mind but couldn't remember all the words do I googled it. I want to give these words to a young lady who is coming to stay with me. She has lost her husband her house and has 2 children to support so she needs this song.
