1372. Go bury thy sorrow

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 a weary
With heavier woe,
Now droop 'mid the darkness:
Go comfort them, go!
Go bury thy sorrows,
Let others be blest;
Go give them the sunshine,
Tell Jesus the rest.
