Representative Text

1 Jesus is my Helper,
Mighty and strong,
Heart and hand he strengthens
All the day long;
All my cares he knoweth,
Doth my toiling see,
And his sweet compassion
Bringeth joy to me.

Refrain:
Jesus is my Helper
Mighty and strong.
Heart and hand he strengthens
All the day long.

2 Jesus is my Helper,
Tender and true,
Friend more kind and faithful
None ever knew;
All my griefs I tell him,
He doth see and know,
When life's storm-clouds gather
Unto him I go. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is my Helper,
Light of my way,
Near his side so precious
Ever I'll stay;
Jesus is my Helper,
Jesus is my Friend,
He will guide me ever
Until life shall end. [Refrain]
