Representative Text

1 Over and over I seem to hear
Words that are bringing
A thought of cheer,
Sounding like music upon my ear—
“Somebody cares for me!”

Somebody cares when the days are drear;
Somebody cares in the time of cheer;
Trustful and glad my soul shall be,
Knowing that Jesus cares for me!

2 Even when sorrows beset my way,
Trusting in Jesus, I’ll not dismay;
Over and over I sing each day—
“Somebody cares for me!” [Refrain]

3 Jesus alone has a voice to charm;
His is the strength which can shield from harm;
Gladly I’m leaning upon His name—
“Somebody cares for me!” [Refrain]
