1 Don’t you know that Jesus knows all your care,
All your thorn-paths, all your woes, your despair?
Ev’ry time the tempter calls,
Ev’ry time the world enthralls,
All your troubles, all your woes,
He always knows, He always knows,
And sees the tear that silent flows,
The thorn that in your pathway grows,
The Saviour knows, He always knows.
2 Don’t you know that Jesus bends over you?
More than all your earthly friends He is true;
All the while you humbly plead
Jesus knows your ev’ry need,
Ev’ry sob and tears that flows,
Jesus knows. [Refrain]
3 Don’t you know He whispers still, “O come home?”
Won’t you, yielding to His will, cease to roam?
Heed His loving voice today,
Have your burden rolled away,
Sweet compassion still He shows,
For He knows. [Refrain]
