Representative Text

1 Jesus knows thy sorrow,
Knows thine ev’ry care;
Knows thy deep contrition,
Hears thy feeblest prayer;
Do not fear to trust him—
Tell Him all thy grief;
Cast on Him thy burden,
He will bring relief.

2 Trust the heart of Jesus,
Thou art precious there;
Surely He would shield thee
From the tempter’s snare;
Safely He would lead thee,
By His own sweet way,
Out into the glory
Of a brighter day.

3 Jesus knows thy conflict,
Hears thy burdened sigh;
When thy heart is wounded,
Hears thy plaintive cry:
He thy soul will strengthen,
Overcome thy fears;
He will send thee comfort,
Wipe away thy tears.
