When The Heart Is Weary


When the heart is weary,
When its comforts die,
When its tender throbings
Meet no kind reply,-

Refrain:
One loving word from Jesus
Bids every shadow flee;
One little word from Jesus,
Lean, my child, on me.

When the heart is lonely,
When it longs for rest,
Go to Him who loves thee,
Lean thou on His breast. [Refrain]

When the heart is breaking,
Crushed with grief and pain,
How that word from Jesus
Thrills its chords again! [Refrain]

O that word from Jesus,
Breathed in tones so dear,
Gives us joy in sorrow,
Gives us hope in fear. [Refrain]
