11834. God Knows it All

1 Art thou weary, soul, of straying?
God knows, He knows it all;
Come to Him, make no delaying,
He knows it all.

Refrain:
Come with thy sorrow, come with thy care;
Come with thy burden so heavy to bear;
He knows thy sorrow, He knows it all;
Come to thy helper, oh, heed now His call.

2 Is the pathway long and dreary?
God knows, He knows it all;
He will strengthen thee when weary,
He knows it all. [Refrain]

3 Do thy cherished friends forsake thee?
God knows, He knows it all;
To His sheltering arms betake thee,
He knows it all. [Refrain]
