190. Jesus Passed This Way Before

1 Joy to me this tho't has given, (tho't has given),
Jesus passed this way before, (way before);
All the way from earth to heaven, (earth to heaven),
Jesus passed this way before. (way before.)

Refrain:
Tho' the clouds are heavy o'er me, (heavy o'er me),
And tho' dark the way before me; (way before me;)
This can fill my soul with singing, (soul with singing,)
Jesus passed this way before. (way before.)

2 Does the road seem rough and weary, (rough and weary)?
Jesus passed this way before, (way before);
Does the night seem dark and dreary, (dark and dreary)?
Jesus passed this way before. (way before.) [Refrain]

3 Is my heart with sorrow breaking, (sorrow breaking)?
Jesus passed this way before, (way before);
When my breast with sobs is shaking, (sobs is shaking),
Jesus passed this way before. (way before.) [Refrain]

4 I am on this Friend relying, (Friend relying),
Jesus passed this way before, (way before);
And I'll shout when I am dying, (I am dying),
Jesus passed this way before. (way before.) [Refrain]
