Representative Text

1 Never alone in this earthly way,
Somebody cares, Somebody cares;
I have a helper each busy day;
Somebody cares, ‘tis Jesus;
Somebody cares when the clouds hand low,
Cares when my heart is o’erwhelmed with woe,
Care and is marking my path below,
Somebody cares, ‘tis Jesus.

Somebody cares for me,
Somebody cares for me,
In all my life His kind hand I see,
Somebody cares, ‘tis Jesus.

2 When I am singing a happy song,
Somebody cares, Somebody cares;
When I am fighting against the wrong,
Somebody cares, ‘tis Jesus;
Somebody cares when I stand alone,
Cares when the pleasures of earth are gone,
Cares when my false hopes with wings have flown,
Somebody cares, ‘tis Jesus. [Refrain]

3 When I am weary and long for rest,
Somebody cares, Somebody cares;
When by the tempter I’m sorely press’d,
Somebody cares, ‘tis Jesus;
Somebody cares, and whate’er betide,
Walks ev’ry hour by the Christian’s side,
Love so amazing will e’er abide,
Somebody cares, ‘tis Jesus. [Refrain]
