Representative Text

1 Faint with the heat, and the length of the road,
I was oppressed with a wearisome load:
One came so tenderly, saying to me,
"Give Me thy load, 'tis too heavy for thee."

Chorus:
Jesus Himself,
Jesus Himself,
O 'twas my Saviour, 'twas Jesus Himself.

2 I was so poor; not a penny had I
Clothing or food for the journey to buy:
One came and whispered, "Leave that to My care;
Wealth of a kingdom with thee will I share." [Chorus]

3 I was so lonely for lack of a friend:
One came and offered me love without end,
Love that is mighty to strengthen and save,
Love that can triumph 'er death and the grave. [Chorus]

4 What tho' the valleys be many and deep;
What if the pathway be stony or steep;
Mountain, or moorland, or valley of death:
"I will be with thee," my Comforter saith. [Chorus]
