He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
[Stafford] was a semi-invalid for many years, and was subject to discouragement and depression. But one day the Lord spoke to her heart and brought special peace and comfort.
Wanting to share the blessing, she wrote some lines of verse on a postcard, and sent them to gospel musician Homer Rodeheaver—whom she’d never met.
Timidly she asked if the words were worth setting to music. He thought they were, and he did.

Somebody knows when your heart aches,
And everything seems to go wrong;
Somebody knows when the shadows
Need chasing away with a song;
Somebody knows when you’re lonely,
Tired, discouraged and blue;
Somebody wants you to know Him,
And know that He dearly loves you.
Somebody cares when you’re tempted,
And your mind grows dizzy and dim;
Somebody cares when you’re weakest,
And farthest away from Him;
Somebody grieves when you’re fallen,
You are not lost from His sight;
Somebody waits for your coming,
And He’ll drive the gloom from your night.
Somebody loves you when weary;
Somebody loves you when strong;
Always is waiting to help you,
He watches you—one of the throng
Needing His friendship so holy,
Needing His watchcare so true;
His name? We call His name Jesus;
He loves everyone, He loves you.
