Representative Text

1 O give thy heart to Jesus,
Thy weary heart of care;
No friend can love so deeply;
Go, find thy refuge there.

O give thy heart to Jesus,
A balm for ev’ry care;
Go, hide beneath His shadow;
No storm can reach thee there.

2 O trust the heart of Jesus,
Breathe all thy sorrows there;
He loves to hear thy pleadings,
Thy humble, contrite prayer. [Refrain]

3 Go, hide thyself in Jesus;
No foe can harm thee there;
His hand will lift thy burdens,
And all thy sorrows bear. [Refrain]

4 Go, lean thy heart on Jesus,
Who sees each falling tear;
No friend so true and tender
Can soothe thy every fear. [Refrain]
