He knows, yes, He knows when we’re tempted and tried; Our prayers He will answer if close by His side. He knows, yes, He knows when our spirit is sad— If we trust in Him fully, our hearts He’ll make glad.
Refrain: He knows, He knows, oh, yes, He knows, He knows our every weakness, oh, yes, He knows; Our every sorrow, ache, or pain Jesus surely knows; He knows, He knows, our blessed Savior knows.
He knows, yes, He knows when the billows roll high; Just trust in His promise and He will draw nigh. He knows, yes, He knows when our souls are distressed; Simply lean, helpless pilgrim, on Jesus and rest.
He knows, yes, He knows all that we must endure In life’s rugged journey, His promise is sure. Then let us be firm and abide in His will; He will help us and cheer us, our spirits He’ll fill.
No sadness or woe up in heaven so bright, But there we’ll be happy in realms of pure light. Oh, let us make sure of that home of the soul, Then we’ll sing while the ages eternally roll.
