1 In the dark without a light,
Blind, but longing for my sight,
Always vanquished in the fight,—
Just the case for Him.

Refrain:
Just the case for Him,
Just the case for Him;
Coming with my ev’ry need,
Just the case for Him.

2 Lost, and wand’ring from the way,
Bankrupt, with my debts to pay,
Guilty, and with naught to say,—
Just the case for Him. [Refrain]

3 Burdens much too hard to bear,
Only filthy rags to wear,
Many griefs, and none to care,—
Just the case for Him. [Refrain]

4 Tossed upon the billow’s crest,
With no place where I can rest,
Safe at last upon His breast,—
Just the case for Him. [Refrain]

5 Coming with my ev’ry need,
Having nothing good to plead,
Yet I know I am indeed,—
Just the case for Him. [Refrain]
