Jesus Is Always There

Full Text

1 Sometimes our skies are cloudy and dreary,
Sometimes our heats are burdened with care;
But we may know, whate'er may befall us,
Jesus is always there.

Chorus:
Never a burden that He doth not carry,
Never a sorrow that He doth not share;
Whether the days may be sunny or dreary,
Jesus is always thee.

2 When in the midst of life with its problems,
Bent with our toil and burdens we bear;
Wonderful thought and deep consolation:
Jesus is always there. [Chorus]

3 When we are walking thru the green pastures,
Or over mountains rugged and bare;
Precious the thought and sweet the assurance,
Jesus is always there. [Chorus]

4 "Lo, I am with you alway," is written,
God will not fail to answer our prayer;
Trusting His word we rest in His promise,—
Jesus is always there. [Chorus]
