I’ve a dear Savior, ready to listen,
Bending to hear me from on high;
Even the humblest Jesus will welcome,
Every low whisper finds Him nigh.


I will tell Jesus, I will tell Jesus,
He is my friend, my Savior, king;
I will tell Jesus, I will tell Jesus,
I will tell Jesus everything.

When I am joyous, in the glad sunshine,
I will tell Him who loves me so;
Surely my Savior waiteth to hear it,
Every sweet secret He shall know.


When I’m in danger, when I’m in darkness,
Tempted to think no helper near,
Still I’ll run to Him, tell Him the story,
Ask Him to keep from harm and fear.


Trouble and sorrow drive me to Jesus,
Whom beside Him, on earth, have I?
Others may love me, Jesus can save me,
Jesus will hear me when I cry.


If I am tempted, if I distrust Him,
If I forget and go astray,
Still I’ll return and tell it to Jesus,
Ask Him to keep me every day.
