1 When you come to the place where you need a friend
And you find those you’ve trusted untrue,
Don’t despair! for, to share in your load of care
Jesus waits, He waits for you.

Refrain:
He has been there before you, and is waiting for you;
He has been there before you, and He knows the way through;
He has been there before you— you’ve a helper that’s true;
Jesus waits, He waits for you.

2 When you feel left alone, and your sky turns gray,
When the future looks hopeless to you;
All disheartened, you say you’re too weary to pray;
Jesus waits, He waits for you. [Refrain]

3 When alone in your sorrow your poor heart bleeds
For the light and the joy once you knew,
Dry your tears, calm your fears, for, to meet your needs
Jesus waits, He waits for you. [Refrain]
