1 Is there anyone can help us, one who understands our hearts,
When the thorns of life have pierced them till they bleed;
One who sympathizes with us, who in wondrous love imparts
Just the very, very blessing that we need?

Yes, there's One, only One,
The blessed, blessed Jesus, He's the One;
When afflictions press the soul,
When waves of trouble roll,
And you need a friend to help you, He's the One.

2 Is there any one can help us, when the load is hard to bear,
And we faint and fall beneath it in alarm;
Who in tenderness will lift us, and the heavy burden share,
And support us with an everlasting arm? [Refrain]

3 Is there anyone can help us, who can give the sinner peace,
When his heart is burden’d down with pain and woe;
Who can speak the word of pardon that affords a sweet release,
And whose blood can wash and make us white as snow? [Refrain]

4 Is there anyone can help us, when the end is drawing near,
Who will go thro' death's dark waters by our side;
Who will light the way before us, and dispel all doubt and fear,
And will bear our spirits safely o'er the tide? [Refrain]
