Though Shadows Fall On The Path


Tho’ shadows fall on the path I tread,
Somebody knows, somebody cares;
And fond ambitions lie crush’d and dead,
Somebody knows and cares.
And ‘mid the shadows so dark and drear,
When I am troubled with doubt and fear,
Like sweetest music these words I hear,
Somebody knows and somebody cares.

Chorus:
Somebody cares for me,
Jesus my friend will be;
He all my joy and my grief will share,
Praise His dear name, He knows and He cares.

When I am tempted and tried each day,
Somebody knows, somebody cares;
And for the vict’ry in faith I pray,
Somebody knows and cares.
When I have triumph’d o’er sin and wrong,
And I am happy the whole day long,
Praising His name in a glad, sweet song,
Somebody knows and somebody cares. [Chorus]

Whate’er my cross in this life may be,
Somebody knows, somebody cares;
I’ll bravely bear it and faithful be,
Somebody knows and cares.
I’ll trust His love where I cannot see,
Thro’ cloud and sunshine I’ll happy be,
Knowing my Saviour will care for me,
Praise His dear name, He knows and He cares. [Chorus]
