Tell Him Lyrics - Lauryn Hill

Review The Song (25)

Yo heh heh tell him it's like uhh you know uhh
Sweet sweet SWEET tell him

Let me be patient let me be kind
Make me unselfish without being blind
Though I may suffer I'll envy it not
And endure what comes
Cause he's all that I got and
tell him...

Tell him I need him [yeah]
Tell him I love him [tell him]
And it'll be alright
*Background singing* Telll himmm be alright be alright
Tell him tell him I need him
Tell him I love him
It'll be alright

Now I may have faith to make mountains fall
But if I lack love then I am nothin' at all
I can give away everything I possess
But am without love then I have no happiness
I know I'm imperfect [I know I'm imperfect]
& not without sin [& not without sin]
But now that I'm older all childish things end
and tell him...

Tell him I need him [yeah]
Tell him I love him [tell him]
And it'll be alright
*Background singing* Telll himmm be alright be alright
Tell him tell him I need him
Tell him I love him
It'll be alright

I'll never be jealous
And I won't be too proud
Cause love is not boastful
Oooh and love is not loud
Tell him I need him
Tell him I love him
Everything's gonna be alright [w/ adlibs]
ieee iee ieee iee iee iee iee iee

Now I may have wisdom and knowledge on Earth
But if I speak wrong then what is it worth?
See what we now know is nothing compared
to the love that was shown when our lives were spared
and tell him...

Tell him I need him [yeah]
Tell him I love him [tell him]
And it'll be alright
*Background singing* Telll himmm be allright be alright
Tell him tell him I need him
Tell him I love him
It'll be alright

Close to my heart. | Reviewer: Katie | 10/8/13

I've alwayS have been a fan of Lauren Hill. I had this song played at my beautiful Husband's funeral services. He died suddenly of a heart attack at the young age of 51. I cry everyday for my him. God took him too early. I'm 46. I found him and he died in my arms in the Hospital. The song made me feel like I knew my Baby was with the Lord. That's he's ok. But I will never be.

Graceful. | Reviewer: Marc Mentor | 2/10/13

Everything about this song, and about this woman is just divine. I could never, and still can't ever seem to understand why people don't appreciate Lauryn Hill's messages. She is by far the greatest (if not the only) female artist to successfully rap and sing. She's humble and down to earth, a sure sign that the gift we enjoy truly is from God.

A Message | Reviewer: Tita | 7/15/12

Every song has a message and everyone receives it differently. In her moment of suffering she asks her guardian angels to tell him she needs him and that she loves him. No matter what she is going through she will always love him...GOD

cover by esperanza spalding | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/12/11

esperanza spalding did a brilliant brilliant cover of this song when she performed at the white house. after not having heard this song for a little while, seeing esperanza sing it reignited the power of the message in this song for me. its just fantastic. different, but fantastic

Out of darkness | Reviewer: renee | 8/18/10

Lauryen, thank you for this blessed song-- this song woke me out of a comma of dispair. I was finally able to lift my head-- due your pure praise. I pray you continue to inspire others to greatness and to know the greatest love of all-- Christ!

Best Song Ever | Reviewer: Nick | 6/27/10

I Been Loving This Song Since I Was Like Eight! I Listen 2 It All The Time! It Touches Me Deeply And Sometimes When I'm In Despair I Cry When I Hear It Because It Has That Affect On Me And On Many Others! Greatest Song Ever!

Absolutely Beautiful & Divine! | Reviewer: Queen Denise | 12/3/09

I've enjoyed this song for almost 10 years and it still makes me cry. Lauryn your spirit is so beautiful and rich in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you for sharing your gift of music with the world. I miss you and wonder if you're coming back to bless us again. I understand if not... Stay the way you are our planet needs your vibrations.

A love song for Jesus Christ | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/13/09

This song is def. about Jesus and not about a man. You can tell throughout the whole thing but esp. when she says "love is not boastful, love is not loud" and also "nothing compares to the love that was shown when our lives were spared." There's really no other way to read those two lines.

Throughout the song, in my interpretation and Catholic way of viewing the Trinity, she is asking God to tell Him she loves Him and needs HIm. As in, God, tell Jesus I love Him and need Him.

A deep soulful and love "about a man" song is "Nothing Even Matters." These are my two favourite songs ... ever.

May God blessed your heart Lauryn! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/8/09

When I first heard this song, I thought she was singing it for a man... Then after I look for the lyrics, I said to my self: This song is for No man, it is just for all mighty God.... knowing that make me enjoy even better this song!
Hope we listen to you soon Lauryn!!! JJC, Costa Rica

I wish sh'ed come back | Reviewer: Ashia Abdullah | 6/20/09

i know i'm only 16, but from listining to my parents cd's, at the age of 10 she became the best singer in the world. not too many singers can make me cry off of a whole cd and she does that. this song always gets me.

Praise the Lord! | Reviewer: foopie | 4/12/09

Praise the Lord this song is a love song to Jesus!!
I just found the song and listened to it and loved the sound of it. Then I listened to the LYRICS!! oh my goodness it's Scripture!

Praise the Lord!

Divine wisdom | Reviewer: nalz | 1/14/09

Lauryn Hill - has exactly that , she has been anointed and has divine wisdom. Wisdom many cannot fathom her level of spiritual intelligence- hence they call her : crazy, unstable and many other things.

She epitomises humanity, i'm going through such a strong spiritual uplifment right now, i had forgotten about this song, was reading a random article and someone mentioned it was their favourite song- and i went on youtube , listened to it and OMG - i am filled with emotion and goose bumps for each and every time i repeat it.

She is amazing!

Tell Him | Reviewer: Robert | 9/13/08

This is such an amazing song off an amazing album from an amazing human being. To me, the song speaks of spiritual love between us and our Father in Heaven.I love this song so much.
Can I also say to Monica who referenced bible passages and Lauyn's paraphrasing of those passages....your comment and the way you tied Lauyn's lyrics with the passages made me cry...we are all spiritual beings and I pray that we can all co-exist in love.

"Tell Him" | Reviewer: nothingmatters | 9/1/08

This is a great song. There are plenty of references to Bible passages in Lauryn's songs. Although some might interpret this as a love song, I think it is more of a spiritual song. It's way too deep and powerful to just be about a relationship with a man.

LOVE | Reviewer: Jesenia | 1/27/08

I loveeeeeeee this song it's so beautiul and for the longest time I've wondered if it's religious but Im assuming it is cuz it says " nothing compares to the love that was shown when our lives were spared"
