Representative Text

1 Whene’er your trials are too hard for you,
Burdens are heavy, and your friends seem few,
Go to your Savior, kneel to Him in prayer,
He’ll hear you, for He’s always there.

Get close to Jesus, He’s your best friend;
Get close to Jesus, He’ll comfort send;
In times of trial, in times of fear,
Get close to Jesus, He’s always near.

2 He is the Friend above all others rare;
Even the sparrow is within His care;
Much more to you will He His love bestow
If to Him you will only go. [Refrain]

3 So for tomorrow and its needs ne’er fear;
Leave all to Him, have faith, be of good cheer;
Then go and help some others’ cross to bear,
And tell them of His wondrous care. [Refrain]
