Representative Text

1 Does your life seem dreary, are you tempted to despair?
Is the burden heavy you must bear?
Is your soul deprived of all that’s beautiful and fair?
Jesus bears you on His heart.

Refrain:
Jesus bears you on His heart,
He will strength divine impart;
Look to Him believing,
Peace and joy receiving:
Jesus bears you on His heart.

2 Does it sometimes seem that you must suffer all alone?
Are you in the fiery furnace thrown?
For your deeds of mercy is unkindness often shown?
Jesus bears you on His heart. [Refrain]

3 Have you laid away a dear one in the darksome grave,
Giving back to God what once He gave?
Safely rest upon His bosom who is strong to save;
Jesus bears you on His heart. [Refrain]

4 Mindful of our needs, a kind, unerring Friend is He,
For He loves his own unceasingly;
In the hour of darkness to His arms unfailing flee;
Jesus bears you on His heart. [Refrain]

5 Whatsoe’er your trial, do not doubt that some glad day
Every earthly pain will pass away;
Leave them all with One who hears His children when they pray;
Jesus bears you on His heart. [Refrain]
