Somebody Cares

Representative Text

1 Somebody knows when your heart aches,
And ev'rything seems to go wrong;
Somebody knows when the shadows
Need chasing away with a song;
Somebody knows when you’re lonely,
Tired, discouraged and blue;
Somebody wants you to know Him,
And know that He dearly loves you.

2 Somebody cares when you’re tempted,
And your mind grows dizzy and dim;
Somebody cares when you’re weakest,
And farthest away from Him;
Somebody grieves when you’re fallen,
You are not lost from His sight;
Somebody waits for your coming,
And He’ll drive the gloom from your night.

3. Somebody loves you when weary;
Somebody loves you when strong;
Always is waiting to help you,
He watches you— one of the throng
Needing His friendship so holy,
Needing His watch-care so true;
His name? We call His name Jesus;
He loves ev'ryone, He loves you.
