When My Heart Is Heavy Burdened

When my heart is heavy burdened, when so distant seems the goal,
And the dreary shadows darken all thy sky,
O how sweet to hear the whisper of the Love of my soul,
And to know that I shall see Him by and by.

I shall see my Redeemer by and by,
I shall see my Redeemer by and by;
O the joy it will be to see His face,
Shouting forth the wonders of His saving grace.

When the toil of day seems fruitless, when at eve no sheaves are mine,
And I send the homeward way with empty hands,
O how sweet to catch the comfort of my precious Friend divine,
And to know that my Redeemer understands. [Refrain]

I will trust His love completely and be ready for His call,
Naught shall cause my soul to wander form His fold;
He will share my cares and troubles, lead me safely thro’ them all,
Till my Lord, in all His beauty, I behold. [Refrain]
