Does Jesus care when my heart is pained
Too deeply for mirth and song;
As the burdens press and the cares distress,
And the way grows weary and long?
Does Jesus care when my way is dark
With a nameless dread and fear?
As the daylight fades into deep night shades,
Does He care enough to be near?
Does Jesus care when I’ve tried and failed
To resist some temptation strong;
When for my deep grief I find no relief,
Though my tears flow all the night long?
Does Jesus care when I’ve said “good-by”
To the dearest on earth to me
And my sad heart aches till it nearly breaks -
Is it aught to Him? Does He see?
O yes, He cares; I know He cares,
His heart is touched with my grief;
When the days are weary , the long nights dreary,
I know my Savior cares.

Thank you. The last verse kept me going when I became a widower. Bless each one of you for how you bless all in the ether land. Love, Ken
