When Sorrow And Trouble Like Sea


When sorrow and trouble like sea billows roll,
Tell me the story of Jesus;
When evil assails me and doubts fill my soul,
Tell me the story of Jesus.

Refrain:
Tell it to me,
Tell it to me,
Tell me the story of Jesus;
Tell it to me.

When weary from labor I rest by the way,
Tell me the story of Jesus;
It strengthens my purpose and brightens the day,
Tell me the story of Jesus. [Refrain]

In times of affliction, when suff’ring from pain,
Tell me the story of Jesus;
It softens my pillow, revives me again;
Tell me the story of Jesus. [Refrain]

When life here is over and time is no more,
Tell me the story of Jesus;
O tell it again on the beautiful shore;
Tell me the story of Jesus. [Refrain]
