Tell It To Jesus (Hymn)

Tell It To Jesus
Edmund Lorenz (1876)

Are you weary, are you heavy hearted?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
Are you grieving over joys departed?
Tell it to Jesus alone.

Refrain

Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus,
He is a Friend that’s well known.
You’ve no other such a friend or brother,
Tell it to Jesus alone.

Do the tears flow down your cheeks unbidden?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
Have you sins that to men’s eyes are hidden?
Tell it to Jesus alone.

Refrain

Do you fear the gathering clouds of sorrow?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
Are you anxious what shall be tomorrow?
Tell it to Jesus alone.

Refrain

Are you troubled at the thought of dying?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
For Christ’s coming kingdom are you sighing?
Tell it to Jesus alone.

This is a great hymn.  We really should “tell it to Jesus.”  We should take all of our cares to Him.  We should lean on Him.  It is true that “we’ve no other such a friend or brother.”  No matter what our problem or trouble, we should be “telling it to Jesus.”

  1. I think sometimes I like to tell someone else first, but do better when I go to Him first! 🙂 I loved this Ben! Thank you!

    • I think that is probably our common natural reaction, Deb. I usually find myself complaining about things before I remember to take them to Him. This is something that I definitely need to work on!

    Tell it to Jesus is the first and best way, but its true that so often we tell someone else first. Thank God He doesn’t hold it against us. When we go to Him and even before we go He is already working on an answer.

    • I totally agree. It seems that, so often, He is the last person we go to. But when we go to Him, we find Him ready to help and we find that He usually already has our problem solved.
