1 When your heart is faint and drear,
There is hope and comfort near—
Tho’ the bitter, bitter tears,
And the weary, weary years
Fail to drive away our fears—
Jesus cares! yes, He cares!
When with burdens sore opprest;
Yes, He cares!
Come to Him, He’ll give you rest,
For He cares!
2 Are you often sore oppressed?
And He longs to give your rest,
For He cares;
Tho’ by chains of sorrow bound,
And in darkness all around,
Soon the brighter note will sound—
Jesus cares! [Refrain]
3 Are you in suspense and fear?
All your dread will disappear—
Does the one you love so well,
Hurt you more than words can tell?
He will all your anguish quell,
For He cares! [Refrain]
4 More than any earthly friend
And His love will never end,
For He cares.
O, how precious just to know,
As a long life’s path you go,
There is One who loves you so—
One who cares! [Refrain]
