1 Are the burdens you carry too hard to bear,
Do you soon get discourag’d with grief and care?
Go and tell it to Jesus, He’ll hear your pray’r,
For He knows all His children by name.

Refrain:
Jesus knows all His children by name,
And His mercy remains just the same;
Ev’ry burden you bear, He will cheerfully share,
For He knows all His children by name.

2 When you feel sad and lonely you’re not alone,
Ev’ry sorrow and burden to Him are known;
He is pleading in mercy before the throne,
For the children He calleth by name. [Refrain]

3 If the pathway is gloomy you’re call’d to tread,
Do not falter not tremble, there’s light ahead;
Keep on pressing and toiling, there’s naught to dread,
Jesus knows all His children by name. [Refrain]

4 When we gather in glory to dwell for aye,
We shall see Him and know Him on that glad day;
And forever and ever with Him we’ll stay,
For the children He calleth by name. [Refrain]
