From The Hymnal ~ I Must Tell Jesus

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7

I had another post prepared for this segment this morning but I woke up with this hymn roll thru my head. I encountered so many dear folks this week who were bearing burdens that were beyond their abilities to bear. I love both this verse and this hymn....GREAT reminders that we are not alone in our cares.

I Must Tell Jesus

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,
Make of my troubles quickly an end.


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, and He will help me
Over the world the victory to win.

    Jesus can help me, Jesus ALONE! That's what I have to remember Gail...(Alone) He is all sufficient. Thanks for the reminder of the great old hymn.

  1. This has always been one of my favorite hymns. I learned a beautiful arrangement of this on the piano and my family often ask me to play it when I am visiting.
    It is such a wonderful song and the words are so very true.
    Thank you for this lovely post.

    I love this one too! So far, you keep posting my favorites. Maybe that's because I have so many favorites!

    There's a story behind this one, as I recall. I can't remember it, but I remember liking it.

    How often I have thought of this hymn when there is something that "I must tell Jesus."

    Love this song too!! So many of the old hymns I find myself singing these days though I am a lover of choruses!

    Praying that those we minister to here in Colorado would see that they must Tell Jesus also and see the great privilege we have of coming to Him in not only or need but or every moment!

    bee blessed
