Does Jesus Care?

Does Jesus care when my heart is pained
Too deeply for mirth or song,
As the burdens press, And the cares distress,
And the day grows weary and long?

Refrain:
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.

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 in my deep grief I find no relief,
Tho’ my tears flow all the night long?

Does Jesus care when I’ve said goodbye,
To the dearest on earth to me,
And my sad heart aches Till it nearly breaks,
Is this aught to Him? Does He see?

–Frank E. Graeff, 1860-1919
