Să-I spun lui Isus orice durere

Să-I spun lui Isus orice durere
Ce câte-odată m-apasă greu;
El mă ajută și-mi dă scăpare,
El mă păzește de orice rău.
Să-I spun lui Isus,
Să-I spun lui Isus!
Chinul meu singur
Nu-l pot purta,
Să-I spun lui Isus,
Să-I spun lui Isus!
Isus mă scapă de grija mea.
Să-I spun lui Isus nevoi și grijuri
Ce mă frământă neîncetat;
Îmi dă odihnă, eliberare
Și mântuire de-orice păcat.
Lumea întreagă vrea să mă-nșele,
Să mă despartă de-al meu Isus;
Să-I spun în rugă și-astă durere,
Și-a Lui putere îmi e de-ajuns.

Versiunea Originală

I must tell Jesus I must tell Jesus all of my trials, I cannot bear these burdens alone; In my distress He kindly will help me, He ever loves and cares for His own. Refrain: I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus! I cannot bear my burdens alone; I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus! Jesus can help me, Jesus alone. I must tell Jesus all of my troubles, He is a kind, compassionate Friend; If I but ask Him He will deliver, Make of my troubles quickly an end. Tempted and tried I need a great Savior, One who can help my burdens to bear; I must tell Jesus, I must tell Jesus: He all my cares and sorrows will share. What must I do when worldliness calls me? What must I do when tempted to sin? I must tell Jesus, and He will help me Over the world the vict’ry to win.

Povestea din Spate (EN)

Elisha Hoffman loved the Lord and chose to show it by working to help people whom others would call the “down and out”. One day he was visiting a woman who was in great pain and very discouraged. Hoffman reminded the woman that she needed to tell Jesus about her problems. She had completely forgotten this simple truth and started repeating the words, “Yes, I must tell Jesus.” On his way home those words rang in his ears and would not go away. He promptly wrote the words and the tune to the hymn, “I Must Tell Jesus.” In it, he expressed that we not only need to go to Jesus about our physical needs but also concerning the worldly temptations that allure us each day.
