Oft When The Day Is Dreary


Oft when the day is dreary,
Oft when the storm clouds lower,
Oft when my spirit’s weary-
Jesus imparts His power.

Refrain
Jesus is near, burdens to bear;
Weary one, Jesus will help thee;
Jesus is near, burdens to bear;
His blood from sin doth cleanse thee.

He bids me tell my story,
Telling, He gives me rest;
And while my sorrows sharing,
Shelters me in His breast. [Refrain]

Jesus, Thy heart is with me
All thro’ the darkest night,
As when the sun shines clearly
Making my pathway bright. [Refrain]

Wondrous in love is Jesus,
Sweet is the rest He gives;
Sharing in all my toiling,
While in my heart He lives. [Refrain]
