When My Heart Is Crushed With Sorrow


When my heart is crushed with sorrow,
Weighted down my many a care;
Then I look to Him who saved me,
And I find my comfort there.

When against the tempter struggling,
Well nigh yielding in the fight;
Trusting in the strength He gives me,
All my foes are put to flight.

When I long for voices silent,
For the touch of those at rest;
Overcome with grief and anguish,
He will calm my soul distressed.

When my heart is bowed in sorrow,
Oh, what peace to find it true!
“Casting all your care upon Him,”
Knowing that He cares for you.

When life’s sun on earth’s horizon,
Sinks to rest at eventide,
Then I know His love will hold me,
Bear me to the other side.
