There Is Somebody Near To You Burdened W


There is somebody near to you burden’d with sin,
Whom some one should lead to the Saviour;
Somebody’s cry should be heard in earth’s din,
Someone should help him the vict’ry to win:
May not that some one be you?

Chorus:
Somebody ought! will you, will you?
Somebody ought! will you?
Some one should lead him to Jesus the Saviour,
O may not that some one be you?

There is somebody’s heart that is burden’d with grief,
In sadness and shadow he wanders;
Some one should point him to Christ for relief,
Time is fast flying, and surely is brief:
May not that some one be you? [Chorus]

There is somebody who by temptation is tried,
Whom somebody’s effort should strengthen;
Some one should patiently offer to guide
To the great Shepherd, the Christ crucified:
May not that some one be you? [Chorus]

There is somebody troubled by doubt and by fear,
And struggling alone in the darkness;
Somebody longs for a sweet word of cheer,
Someone should tell that the Saviour is near:
May not that some one be you? [Chorus]
