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.
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]
