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.
