Representative Text

1 When the heart is weary,
When its comforts die,
When its tender throbings
Meet no kind reply,—

One loving word from Jesus
Bids every shadow flee;
One little word from Jesus,
Lean, my child, on me.

2 When the heart is lonely,
When it longs for rest,
Go to Him who loves thee,
Lean thou on His breast. [Refrain]

3 When the heart is breaking,
Crushed with grief and pain,
How that word from Jesus
Thrills its chords again! [Refrain]

4 O that word from Jesus,
Breathed in tones so dear,
Gives us joy in sorrow,
Gives us hope in fear. [Refrain]
