Lyrics

Art thou weary, worn and laden?
Is thy lot too hard to bear?
Tell it all to Christ, thy Savior;
He thy burdens all will share.

Refrain

Tell it all, tell it all,
Tell it all, yes, all to Jesus;
Tell it all to Christ, thy Savior;
Tell it all, yes, tell it all.

With thy heart He’s well acquainted,
Knows its trials, griefs and fears;
Knows its yearnings, knows its longings,
All its cries of anguish hears.

Refrain

Ah! He feels thy deepest sorrow,
Knows thy frame, that thou art dust;
Tell Him all thy grief and trouble,
He is worthy of thy trust.
