Tell It To Jesus He Understands Thee


Tell it to Jesus, He understands thee,
Reads all the secret intents of thy heart;
Foes may misjudge and friends may mistake thee,
He will not deal with thee but as thou art.

Chorus:
Tell it to Jesus, He understands thee,
What is thy gain, and what is thy loss;
While thou art His no harm can befall thee,
Tell out thy heart at the foot of His cross.

Tell it to Jesus, He understands thee,
Knows all thy sorrows, and sees all thy tears;
Knows all the hidden pow’rs that withstand thee,
Knows all thy tremblings, thy doubts and thy fears. [Chorus]

Tell it to Jesus, He understands thee,
He can explain ev’ry myst’ry of life;
He can unravel tangles that try thee,
He can speak peace ‘midst thy turmoil and strife. [Chorus]

Tell it to Jesus, He understands thee,
Seeks by His spirit to perfect thy soul;
Sorrows and trials He sends to refine thee,
Tell Him thy case, not in part, but in whole. [Chorus]

Tell it to Jesus, He understands thee,
Hide not thy faults, and excuse not thy sin;
For in the day of account He will greet thee,
Not as thou art from without, but within. [Chorus]
