Representative Text

1 When my heart with its troubles is burdened,
With the struggles that no one can share;
I bring it, so weary, to Jesus,
And he lifts all the burden and care.

Refrain:
There is someone who knows
All my struggles and woes;
There is someone my burdens to bear;
‘Tis Jesus my Friend,
Who loves to the end,
And he shares all my sorrows and cares.

2 When my heart in deep anguish is bleeding
With the sorrows that never will cease;
I bring it for comfort to Jesus,
And he gives me his blessing of peace. [Refrain]

3 When my heart is all broken and wounded,
And I’ve failed in the ceaseless affray;
I bring it for healing to Jesus,
And he takes all the sin-stains away. [Refrain]

4 When my heart for the dear ones is pining,
And life’s journey seems long till its end;
I bring it so lonely to Jesus,
And in him I find more than a friend. [Refrain]
