When Worldly Cares And Troubles Roll


When worldly cares and troubles roll,
Like raging billows o’er my soul;
When clouds obscure the shining goal,
My truest Friend is Jesus.

Refrain:
Jesus, of Calvary,
Jesus, who died for me;
Jesus, eternally,
My truest Friend is Jesus.

When heavy is the cross I bear,
And sorrow fills me with despair;
When earthly friends no longer care,
My truest Friend is Jesus. [Refrain]

When death hat shattered closest ties,
And bitter tears fall from my eyes;
When all alone my spirit sighs,
My truest Friend is Jesus. [Refrain]

In life or death He will be near,
To drive away my ev’ry fear;
There’s naught on earth can harm me here,
My truest Friend is Jesus. [Refrain]
