Representative Text

1 When heavy grows my load of care,
Or when in sorrow or despair
I need a friend my woe to share,
I always go to Jesus.

Refrain:
I always go to Jesus,
The loving, faithful Jesus;
To him alone my wants are known;
I always go to Jesus.

2 When darkness hides the path I take,
And life’s wild storms upon me break;
When earthly friend, I loved, forsake,
I always go to Jesus. [Refrain]

3 When enemies their strength display,
And strive to cause my soul to stray,
From life and light, without delay
I always go to Jesus. [Refrain]

4 When worn, and weary, and depressed,
My trusting spirit sighs for rest,
To lay my head upon his breast,
I always go to Jesus. [Refrain]
