He understands

Full Text

1 Dark the shadows creeping near,
Heavy-hearted from doubt and fear;
None to see the bitter tear,
Only Jesus, He understands.

Only Jesus knows the aching heart,
Only Jesus can wipe the tears that start;
He alone can bid the gloom depart,
Only Jesus, He understands.

2 Tired and weary hope all gone,
Dreading night when day is done!
No one cares how sad and lone,
Only Jesus, He understands. [Refrain]

3 Failures all along life’s way,
Often tempted, so prone to stray,
None a helpful word could say,
Only Jesus, He understands. [Refrain]
