Tell it to Jesus

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1).

God really is the only one I can go to in times of turmoil, confusion, and misunderstanding. He’s the one who understands my pain and knows my heart’s longings. People around me (family and friends) can say and do hurtful things, but only God knows their motivation and individual pain.

I long for peace and unity in an imperfect world. Deep down I know ‘tis impossible. One thing I know for certain: only Jesus is perfect and can satisfy my hungering soul.

Tell it to Jesus (lyrics and composer: Edmund S. 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.

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.

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.
