1 Has the day brought hurt and sorrow,
Thou alone must bear?
Nay, there standeth One beside thee,
All thy griefs to share.

Refrain:
Jesus knows ev’ry burden and trial,
And comfort divine He prepares,
That Friend, who will never forsake thee,
He knows, yes, He knows and He cares.

2 Have the hours brought sore preplexings,
Doubts, with no reply?
Think not, there is none regardeth;
Lo, He standeth by. [Refrain]

3 Have the long night-watches brought thee
Pain, thy frame that rends?
Ah, remember, close above thee,
Tenderly He bends. [Refrain]

4 Have the years brought care and burdens,
Anxious, dost thou fear?
Know then, He, the Burden-bearer,
Now is standing near. [Refrain]
