1 ‘Tis hard to bear the heavy load,
To walk alone the dreary road,
Whil’st others reap the grain we sowed,
But God knows what is best.

Refrain:
He knows, He knows just what is best,
I tell Him all my heart’s unrest,
While to His bosom fondly pressed,
For God knows what is best.

2 The vanities of earth I sought,
Its pleasures to my heart I brought,
But all my spirit sadly taught
That God knows what is best. [Refrain]

3 My heart would quit the toilsome way,
Nor with the earthly longer stay.
I long to bask in endless day;
But God knows what is best. [Refrain]
