1 Broken in Spirit
And laden with care,
Sweet is thy refuge,
Find it in pray’r.

Tell it to Jesus,
Tell it to Jesus,
Tell it to Jesus,
He’ll give relief.

2 Art Thou neglected
And sighing to know
Joys that in friendship
Tenderly flow? [Refrain]

3 Art Thou recalling
The years that have fled,
Weeping in sorrow,
Mourning the dead? [Refrain]

4 Bear thy affliction,
Whatever it be,
Jesus, thy Saviour,
Bore it for thee. [Refrain]
