1 Peter 5:7
"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."

          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?

            Chorus
            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?

            Chorus
            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 I've tried and failed
          To resist some temptation strong;
          When for my deep grief there is no relief,
          Tho' my tears flow all the night long?

            Chorus
            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 I've 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?

            Chorus
            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.
