Art thou weary, soul, of straying?
God knows, He knows it all;
Come to Him, make no delaying,
He knows it all.

Refrain

Come with thy sorrow, come with thy care;
Come with thy burden so heavy to bear;
He knows thy sorrow, He knows it all;
Come to thy helper, oh, heed now His call.

Is the pathway long and dreary?
God knows, He knows it all;
He will strengthen thee when weary,
He knows it all.

Refrain

Do thy cherished friends forsake thee?
God knows, He knows it all;
To His sheltering arms betake thee,
He knows it all.

Refrain
