I Always Go to Jesus

Representative Text

1 I always go to Jesus,
When troubled or distress’d;
I always find a refuge
When I with Him can rest.
I tell Him all my trials,
I tell Him all my grief;
And while my lips are speaking
He gives my heart relief.

2 When full of dread forebodings,
And flowing o’er with tears,
He calms away my sorrows,
And hushes all my fears.
He comprehends my weakness,
The peril I am in,
And He supplies the armor
I need to conquer sin.

3 When those are cold and faithless
Who once were fond and true,
With careless hearts forsaking
The old friends for the new.
I turn to Him whose friendship
Knows neither change nor end;
I always find in Jesus,
An ever faithful friend.

4 I always go to Jesus,
No matter when or where
I seek His gracious presence,
I’m sure to find Him there.
In times of joy or sorrow,
Whate’er my need may be,
I always go to Jesus,
And Jesus comforts me.
