Lyrics

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.
