1 I wonder if there’s someone who can help me,
Who will always be a friend when sorrows press,
I wonder if with tender love he’ll shield me,
And comfort give amid earth’s toil and stress.

Refrain:
Yes, I know that there is One with love unfailing,
It is Jesus and His help is ever near,
In my hour of deepest need He’s sure to help me,
So I’ll trust in Him and never fear.

2 I wonder if there’s someone who can help me,
When life’s burdens seem too much for me to bear,
When with a load of sin my soul is struggling,
Oh, is there one who will each burden share. [Refrain]

3 I wonder if there’s someone who can help me,
When my loved ones seem to slip from earth away,
When darkness hides from me each glad tomorrow,
And tempests rage around me night and day. [Refrain]
