1. Go bury thy sorrow, the world hath its share;
Go bury it deeply, go hide it with care.
Go think of it calmly, when curtained by night;
Go tell it to Jesus, and all will be right.
2. Go tell it to Jesus, He knoweth thy grief;
Go tell it to Jesus, He’ll send thee relief;
Go gather the sunshine He sheds on the way:
He’ll lighten thy burden—Go, weary one, pray.
3. Hearts growing aweary with heavier woe
Now droop ’mid the darkness—Go, comfort them, go!
Go bury thy sorrow, let others be blessed;
Go give them the sunshine, tell Jesus the rest.

Go, bury thy sorrow, p. 1566, i. In the Notes of Joy, 1869, the original of this hymn, with music by Mrs. J. F. Knapp, is given as "Bury thy sorrow, The world has its share." Possibly the words are also by Mrs. Knapp, but this is not stated as being so, and the authorship is open to doubt. See p. 1609, i.
