Broken in spirit
And laden with care,
Sweet is thy refuge:
Find it in prayer.


Tell it to Jesus,
Tell it to Jesus,
Tell it to Jesus,
He will give release.

Art thou neglected
And sighing to know
Joys that in friendship
Tenderly flow?


Art thou recalling
The years that have fled?
Weeping in sorrow,
Mourning the dead?


Bear thy affliction,
Whatever it be;
Jesus thy Savior
Bore it for thee.
