Jesus is the helper
Of the troubled heart,
And to those who sorrow
He will strength impart:
Strength for every trial
He will surely give,
If we simply trust Him,
And His Word believe.

Refrain

Helper divine, Thou art ever near,
Whispering a promise
Fainting souls to cheer,
Helper divine, Thou art ever near,
Whispering a promise
Fainting souls to cheer.

Thro’ the vale of shadows
All must sometime go,
When the heart seems breaking
With its weight of woe.
In that hour, when anguish
Chills your heart and brow,
Hear His gentle whisper,
I am with you now.

Refrain

When a heart is silent
That for you beats true,
Christ is by you standing;
He will comfort you;
Weep not, Jesus bids you
Dry the falling tear;
From the grave is banished
All its darkness drear.

Refrain
