Broken in spirit
And laden with care,
Sweet is thy refuge:
Find it in prayer.

Refrain

Tell it to Jesus,
Tell it to Jesus,
Tell it to Jesus,
He will give release.

Art thou neglected
And sighing to know
Joys that in friendship
Tenderly flow?

Refrain

Art thou recalling
The years that have fled?
Weeping in sorrow,
Mourning the dead?

Refrain

Bear thy affliction,
Whatever it be;
Jesus thy Savior
Bore it for thee.

Refrain
