Jesus Is Near, Burdens to Bear

Representative Text

1 Often the day is dreary,
Often the storm-clouds lower,
Often my spirit’s weary—
Jesus then speaks His power.

Refrain:
Jesus is near, burdens to bear;
Weary one, Jesus will help thee;
Jesus is near, burdens to bear;
His blood from sin doth cleanse thee.

2 Welcome to tell my story,
Telling—He gives me rest;
And, while my sorrows sharing,
Clasps me unto His breast. [Refrain]

3 Jesus my heart loves dearly,
All through the darkest night,
As when the sun shines clearly,
Making my pathway bright. [Refrain]

4 Wondrous in love is Jesus,
Sweet is the rest He gives;
Sharing in all my toiling,
While in my heart He lives. [Refrain]
