What do you need to tell Jesus?

Posted by Danielle Stringer on

Picture of Imperfect Dust "I must tell Jesus" hymn sign.

I've had this hymn on my heart for some time now. I am currently walking through a sweet time with Jesus. He is my greatest friend, and He doesn't just listen to my burdens. He takes them from me and exchanges them for peace that passes all understanding. 

As I typed this, tears streamed from my face thinking about how kind He has been to me. Oh how we can trust Him!

There is a difference in having a religious tradition and a personal relationship. One requires us to work and labor towards perfection. It is joyless and heavy. The other is full of grace and companionship. Jesus offers freedom. His sacrifice made a way so you can come to the Father boldly and without shame.

If I could persuade you to one thing today, it would be to tell Jesus all of your burdens. You are not meant to bear them alone. I am adding the lyrics to this song.

Read them slowly and let them minister to your soul.

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.


What must I do when worldliness calls me?
What must I do when tempted to sin?
I must tell Jesus, and He will help me
Over the world the victory to win.

Lord, please help us to come to you speedily when tried and tempted. You are so faithful and we praise You for Your mercy upon us! Thank you for calling us a friend!
