1. Jesus is the helper of the troubled heart,
And to those who sorrow He will strength impart:
Strength for every trial He will surely give,
If we simply trust Him, and His Word believe.

Refrain
Helper divine, Thou art ever near,
Whispering a promise fainting souls to cheer,
Helper divine, Thou art ever near,
Whispering a promise fainting souls to cheer.

2. Thro’ the vale of shadows all must sometime go,
When the heart seems breaking with its weight of woe.
In that hour, when anguish chills your heart and brow,
Hear His gentle whisper, I am with you now. [Refrain]

3. When a heart is silent that for you beats true,
Christ is by you standing; He will comfort you;
Weep not, Jesus bids you dry the falling tear;
From the grave is banished all its darkness drear. [Refrain]
