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.

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]
