When your spirit bows in sorrow,
From the load it bears,
Go and tell your heart to Jesus—
Don’t you know He cares?

Refrain

Yes, there is One who shares your burdens,
Every sorrow shares;
Go and tell it all to Jesus—
Don’t you know He cares?

Have your feet become entangled
In the tempter’s snares?
Yet you will not be forsaken—
Don’t you know He cares?

Refrain

Is your body filled with anguish,
With the pain it bears?
Think of how the Savior suffered—
Don’t you know He cares?

Refrain
