Representative Text

1 He knoweth thy grief,
He knoweth thy care,
He giveth relief,
Go find it in prayer.

He knoweth thy grief,
Each pang thou dost feel,
And all of thy wounds,
Thy Saviour will heal.

2 He knoweth thy pain,
Thy tears He doth see,
And never in vain,
Thy suff’ring shall be. [Refrain]

3 He knoweth it all,
The wearisome way,
And when thou dost all,
He’ll life thee each day. [Refrain]
