Does Jesus Care?

by adustyframe ~ January 30th, 2007

My Titus 2 friend from church mailed this to me.

I received it today.

Let me just say I needed it.

Have you heard this great song?

Does Jesus Care?

1. Does Jesus care when my heart is pained too deeply for mirth and song;

As the burdens press and the cares distress, and the way grows weary and long?

 

Refrain

O yes, He cares; I know He cares. His heart is touched with my grief.

When my days are weary, the long nights dreary,

I know my Saviour cares.

2. Does Jesus care when my way is dark with nameless dread and fear?

As the day light fades into deep night shades, does He care enough to be near?

 

3. Does Jesus care when I’ve tried and failed to resist some temptation strong?
As the day light fades into deep night shades, does He care enough to be near?

 

4. Does Jesus care when I’ve said “goodbye” to the dearest on earth to me,

And my sad heart aches til it nearly breaks is it aught to Him? Does He see?

And the days grow weary and long is definitely what I’m dealing with.

Verse 4 always makes me cry when I hear it. I know my husband is not truly gone from me and for that I am thankful. But he has been taken away from us and I am so happy that my pain is seen by Him.

 

Thank you for sending this to me friend. (I hope you see this the next time you stop by)

 

I found an older sounding recording if you would like to listen.

    I love that song! My sister sang the verse 4 solo many years ago when she was in the youth group at my church. My grandmother was there; it was right after my granddaddy had just died. It meant so much to her and all of us.

    I love that song. When our baby was dying, I came across it in a hymn book my friend gave me.

    Another one song you might like, :

    Whate’er my God ordains is right:
    His holy will abideth;
    I will be still whate’er He doth;
    And follow where He guideth;
    He is my God; though dark my road,
    He holds me that I shall not fall:
    Wherefore to Him I leave it all.

    Whate’er my God ordains is right:
    He never will deceive me;
    He leads me by the proper path:
    I know He will not leave me.
    I take, content, what He hath sent;
    His hand can turn my griefs away,
    And patiently I wait His day.

    Whate’er my God ordains is right:
    He is my Friend and Father;
    He suffers naught to do me harm,
    Though many storms may gather,
    Now I may know both joy and woe,
    Some day I shall see clearly
    That He hath loved me dearly.

    Whate’er my God ordains is right:
    Though now this cup, in drinking,
    May bitter seem to my faint heart,
    I take it, all unshrinking.
    My God is true; each morn anew
    Sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart,
    And pain and sorrow shall depart.

    Whate’er my God ordains is right:
    Here shall my stand be taken;
    Though sorrow, need, or death be mine,
    Yet I am not forsaken.
    My Father’s care is round me there;
    He holds me that I shall not fall:
    And so to Him I leave it all.
