Representative Text

1 Faint with the heat and the length of the road,
I was oppress’d 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 whisper’d, “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 offer’d me love without end,
Love that is mighty to strengthen and save,
Love that can triumph o'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]
