Words and Music by Elisha A. Hoffman

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

          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.

            Chorus
            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.

            Chorus
            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.

          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.

            Chorus
            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.

          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 vict'ry to win.

            Chorus
            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.
