When Dark And Stormy Is The Way


When dark and stormy is the way,
When sin besets on every hand,
There’s One who’ll be your friend and stay-
Tell Jesus, He will understand.

Refrain:
Tell Jesus, with the thorn-crowned brow,
The riven side and wounded hand;
Tell Jesus, when to Him you bow-
Tell Jesus, He will understand.

No one there is who better knows
The sorrows of this earthly land;
He bears the cross of all our woes-
Tell Jesus, He will understand. [Refrain]

Your heavy burdens He will share,
And guard you with His angel band;
Oh, cast on Him your every care-
Tell Jesus, He will understand. [Refrain]

When all your labors here are o’er
And at the river’s brink you stand,
Fear not, nor dread the breaker’s roar-
Tell Jesus, He will understand. [Refrain]
