Representative Text

1 When the day seems dark and dreary,
When the heart is sad and weary,
Christ the Saviour knows,
All life’s bitter woes.

Jesus knows it all,
Jesus knows it all;
All life’s toils and cares,
All the tempter’s snares;
Jesus knows it all,
He knows it all.

2 When there’s naught but pain and sadness,
When there’s neither joy nor gladness,
Tell the Saviour true,
For He cares for you. [Refrain]

3 Trust the future’s toil and sorrow,
Or its bright and cloudless morrow,
To the faithful Guide,—
In His love abide. [Refrain]
