Representative Text

1 O aching heart, with sorrow torn,
Thy Lord is near and knows!
He knows it all—the feet wayworn,
The weary cares and woes,
The load of grief in anguish borne,
Thy Lord is near;
He knows.

Refrain:
He knows, He knows,
Thy Lord is near;
He knows.

2 O fainting soul, with doubts oppressed,
Thy Lord is near and knows!
He knows it all—how thou art oppressed
On ev’ry side with foes,
He waits to be thy cherished Guest;
Thy Lord is near;
He knows. [Refrain]

3 O weary head, that fain would rest,
Thy Lord is near and knows!
He knows it all, and on His breast
Thou mayest now repose:
Drop every care at His behest;
Thy Lord is near;
He knows. [Refrain]

4 O lonely one, live thou thy best,
Thy Lord is near and knows!
He knows it all, sees every test—
Yes, every tear that flows:
Rejoice, faint heart, His way is best;
Thy Lord is near;
He knows. [Refrain]
