A Hymn for the Sandy Hook Community

Does Jesus Care?

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?

O 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
Tho my tears flow all the night long?

O 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?

O 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.

To the Sandy Hook Community - your nation grieves with you.  I pray that the God of Comfort will grant you rest and peace as only He can give.  

John 11:25-26
25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; 26 and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"

  2. Doreen,
    The hymn is very fitting for this sad time. I often sang it when sad about my parents' passing. It is full of comfort. Thank you for sharing.
    Abiding in Him,
