I've Found That Jesus Cares

I once was sad and lonely, No hope my heart could see

Representative Text

1 I once was sad and lonely,
No hope my heart could see;
I thought that I was friendless,
That no one cared for me;
But clouds away were driven,
No more my heart despairs,
For I, His cross beholding,
Have found that Jesus cares.

Whate'er may go, this do I know,
My Lord abides for aye;
He care for me,
He ears for me
The burdens of the day.

2 Before me still are trials,
Yet I need have not fear,
I thought that I was friendless,
That no one cared for me;
With joy my heart is singing,
As on my way I fare,
To know I'm not forgotten,
To know my Lord doth care. [Refrain]

3 It matters not how dreary
May be the path you tread,
This Friend can take your sorrow
And give you joy instead.
Oh, bring your sins to Jesus,
Your burdens and your cars,
And learn how great His kindness,
How much the Saviour cares. [Refrain]
