Representative Text

1 O hearts that ache and bleed, and break,
God knows the depths of all thy woes;
He will Himself thy burdens take
And shield thee from the heaviest blows.

God knows thy need, He will supply,
He knoweth what for thee is best,
Soon thou shalt see with clearer eye,
Soon enter His eternal rest.

2 Tho’ other eyes be dull and blind
To mark thy grief, to note thy tear,
He sees; His heart is true and kind,
He every pray’r is swift to hear. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ dark the clouds above thy head,
The heav’ns beyond are full of light;
Dismiss thy fears, suppress thy dread;
For thee the days are bright ahead. [Refrain]
