Does Jesus Care
by J. Lincoln Hall
Does Jesus care when my heart is pained
Too deeply for mirth or song
As the burdens press, and the cares distress
And the way grows weary and long?
Oh yes, He cares, I know He cares
His heart is touched with my grief
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary
I know my Savior cares
Does Jesus care when my way is dark
With a nameless dread and fear?
As the daylight fades into deep night shades
Does He care enough to be near?
Does Jesus care when Iíve tried and failed
To resist some temptation strong
When for my deep grief there is no relief
Though my tears flow all the night long?
Does Jesus care when Iíve said "goodbye"
To the dearest on earth to me
And my sad heart aches till it nearly breaks
Is it aught to Him? Does He see?
