Jacob H. Hall (1855–1941)


Ask, and it shall be giv­en you, bro­ther,
He is the Lord who car­eth for all;
Come with your heart all brok­en and bleed­ing;
Come, He will hear and an­swer your call.


Hurry and tell Him, bro­ther and sis­ter;
Jesus, so ten­der, lov­ing and kind,
Waiting to com­fort, bless and de­liv­er;
Hurry and tell Him, peace you will find.

Hurry and tell Him, why do you tar­ry?
Open your heart while Je­sus is near;
Bring Him the bur­dens you can­not car­ry,
Tell Him with cour­age, no­thing to fear.


Hurry and tell what tongue can­not ut­ter,
Groaning and sigh­ing, load­ed with care;
Bruisèd and weak with doubt­ing, you fal­ter;
Tell Him, He waits your bur­dens to bear.


Hurry and tell Him ev­ery af­flict­ion,
Tell Him each pain and sor­row of heart;
Here is the word, All pow­er is giv­en,
Lo! I am with you,
ne­ver to part.
