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.

My mother, who is in heaven, used to sing this song. Now I understand that there times when you are burdened down and can't share what you are going through with others; Jesus is there to listen and help. Jesus is my refuge and will fix it!

My mom sang this song a lot. She was saved after she was married and my father was not a Christian. She had a hard time as light and darkness cannot dwell together. This song helped her until her death just 16 days ago. Thank You Lord for this song!

Lovely old song I learned in the early 1960s. Forgot the lyrics and just found it here. I am excited. Praise the Lord.

The Spirit brought this song to mind today as I thought through several challenges... I could only remember the refrain so I Googled. Now reading the many comments and testimonies here, I'm amazed anew at the awesomeness of this God who is everywhere every time; listening, answering, comforting, encouraging, delivering, working all things for the good of those who love Him. And all we have to do is tell Him! That is pretty cool!

I thank God for all of you who have shared. Your stories of struggle and victory are equally encouraging. May God meet each one of you at your point of need.

Let's keep telling Jesus!

I woke up this moning, thinking about life situations surrounding me with so many challenges and this song came to me. As a little kid I sang this hymn with my parents most especially my mum in the midst of trouble. I feel Jesus is already listening.

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.


Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States

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.
