Lyrics

Broken in spir­it
And la­den with care,
Sweet is thy re­fuge:
Find it in pray­er.

Refrain

Tell it to Je­sus,
Tell it to Je­sus,
Tell it to Je­sus,
He will give re­lease.

Art thou ne­glect­ed
And sigh­ing to know
Joys that in friend­ship
Tenderly flow?

Refrain

Art thou re­call­ing
The years that have fled?
Weeping in sor­row,
Mourning the dead?

Refrain

Bear thy af­flict­ion,
Whatever it be;
Jesus thy Sav­ior
Bore it for thee.
