Often The Day Is Dreary

Often the day is dreary,
Often the storm-clouds lower,
Often my spirit’s weary-
Jesus then speaks His power.

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.

Welcome to tell my story,
Telling-He gives me rest;
And, while my sorrows sharing,
Clasps me unto His breast. [Refrain]

Jesus my heart loves dearly,
All through 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]
