Tell It!

Like I've said in the past, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), today is SONday! 

It's the day when we gather together with church family.  And, worship God!

Just as I do almost every SONday, I'm sharing music with you that is sometimes used to worship Him.

It's a hymn by Edmund S. Lorenz.  It was translated from German to English by Jeremiah E. Rankin, and is entitled, Tell It To Jesus.  Here is a link for you to listen and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0QWDcTwbGg.  The lyrics are below.

Tell It To Jesus

Are you weary, are you heavy hearted?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
Are you grieving over joys departed?
Tell it to Jesus alone.


Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus,
He is a Friend that’s well known.
You’ve no other such a friend or brother,
Tell it to Jesus alone.

Do the tears flow down your cheeks unbidden?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
Have you sins that to men’s eyes are hidden?
Tell it to Jesus alone.

 
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus,
He is a Friend that’s well known.
You’ve no other such a friend or brother,
Tell it to Jesus alone.

Do you fear the gathering clouds of sorrow?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
Are you anxious what shall be tomorrow?
Tell it to Jesus alone.

 
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus,
He is a Friend that’s well known.
You’ve no other such a friend or brother,
Tell it to Jesus alone.

Are you troubled at the thought of dying?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
For Christ’s coming kingdom are you sighing?
Tell it to Jesus alone.

 
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus,
He is a Friend that’s well known.
You’ve no other such a friend or brother,
Tell it to Jesus alone.
 
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus,
He is a Friend that’s well known.
You’ve no other such a friend or brother,
Tell it to Jesus alone.
 
Yes, we need to tell it to Jesus.  Everything.
 
And, we need to ask of Him... everything.
 
Then, he may give it to us.
 
Just as we read, in John 15:16, "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you."
 
Of course, if it His will, He will give to us what we ask, since we have not chosen Him... but, He chose us.  And, ordained us, that we should go and bring forth fruit, and that our fruit should remain.
 
Will He do this for absolutely everyone?
 
He will only do this, for the people who have gained Salvation by trusting in/believing upon Him... our Lord, Jesus Christ... who we are telling to, and asking of.
 
My friend, if you haven't yet gained salvation, please... come to Christ, today.
 
Tomorrow, may be too late.
 
 
Until next time...
