804. Jesus Knows

1 In your pathway have you found some cruel thorns?
Jesus bore them on His brow, and He knows;
Does the world look down upon you with its frown?
All the world forsook your Lord, and He knows.

Refrain:
Jesus knows, yes, He knows;
He was weary, worn, and tried,
Bore our many sins beside,
Hungry, thirsty, crucified, and He knows.

2 Are you weary with the toils and cares of life?
Jesus labored night and day, and He knows;
Does the sinful world annoy you with its strife?
Jesus saw and heard it all, and He knows. [Refrain]

3 Are you tempted with the world so rich and gay?
Jesus once was tempted, too, and He knows;
Does the tempter seek to turn you from the way?
Jesus will your helper be, for He knows. [Refrain]

4 Has the hand of death your eyes bedimmed with tears?
Jesus wept for one He loved, and He knows;
For some wand’rer have you prayed for many years?
Jesus prayed for sinners lost, and He knows. [Refrain]

5 Have your friends forsaken, spurned you from their door?
So they did your blessed Lord, and He knows;
Is there none to cheer and comfort anymore?
Jesus bore the cross alone, and He knows. [Refrain]
