1 There are many sorrows hard to bear,
But none like His,
There are many burdens hearts must share,
But none like His.

No bitter woe, the heart can ever know,
Was like the sorrow which He felt for me,
Not bitter woe, the heart can ever know,
Was like the sorrow which He felt for me.

2 There is cruel anguish men may feel,
But none like His,
There are griefs which God alone can heal,
But none like His. [Refrain]

3 Many scalding tears on earth are wept,
But none like His,
Nights of watching love has often kept,
But none like His. [Refrain]

4 There is agony and sharpest pain,
But none like His,
Sorrows caused by hatred and disdain,
But none like His. [Refrain]

5 There are martyrdoms on earth below,
But none like His,
There are victor’s crowns in heav’n we know,
But none like His. [Refrain]

6 There is glory coming by and by,
But none like His,
Many names will be exalted high,
But none like His. [Refrain]
