Nobody Knows But Jesus

Representative Text

1 Have I burdens hard to bear?
Nobody knows but Jesus,
Who doth all my sorrows share,
Nobody knows but Jesus.

Chorus:
Nobody knows, nobody knows,
Nobody knows but Jesus.
Nobody knows, nobody knows,
Nobody knows but Jesus.

2 How my soul is freed from care,
Nobody knows but Jesus,
When I go to him in prayer,
Nobody knows but Jesus. [Chorus]

3 How to send a cheering ray,
Nobody knows but Jesus,
Turning darkness into day,
Nobody knows but Jesus. [Chorus]

4 How I long to see his face,
Nobody knows but Jesus,
How he fills me with his grace,
Nobody knows but Jesus. [Chorus]
