lyrics

Just a Little Talk With Jesus
I once was lost in sin, but Jesus took me in
Then a little light from heaven healed my soul
Well He bathed my heart with love
And He wrote my name above
Just a little talk with Jesus makes it right

We’ll just have a little talk with Jesus
And we’ll tell him all about out troubles
He will hear our faintest cry
And he will answer by and by
When you feel a little prayer wheel turning
You will know a little fire is burning
Just a little talk with Jesus makes it right

You may have doubts and fears
And your eyes be filled with tears
But my Jesus is a friend who watches day and night
He wrote my name above
And he bathed my heart in love
Just a little talk with Jesus makes it right

We’ll just have a little talk with Jesus
And we’ll tell him all about out troubles
He will hear our faintest cry
And he will answer by and by
When you feel a little prayer wheel turning
You will know a little fire is burning
Just a little talk with Jesus makes it right
