I Must Tell Jesus

Elisha Hoffman was born in Pennsylvania and spent his life as pastor there.

Once while visiting one who had been through deep trial, she cried:  “Oh, what shall I do? I don’t know what to do!”

Then her face brightened and she said, “I must tell Jesus!”

On his way home, the words of the woman came to the pastor’s mind, and that night he wrote this comforting song.


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 always 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.


(4) O how the world of 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.
