1 All the sorrows of thy life,
Jesus knows, He knows;
All the weary years of strife,
Jesus knows, He knows;
All thy burdens, all thy cares,
All thy agonizing prayers;
All the pain thy bosom bears,
Jesus knows, He knows.

2 All thy false friends and thy true,
Jesus knows, He knows;
When thy joys on earth are few,
Jesus knows, He knows;
When the world to thee seems drear,
When there is no helper near;
When thy heart is filled with fear,
Jesus knows, He knows.

3 All the path which thou shalt tread,
Jesus knows, He knows;
Rich the blessings He will shed,
Jesus knows, He knows;
Trust Him then and forward go,
He will guide thee here below;
And will shield thee from each foe,
Jesus knows, He knows.
