Words by Frank E. Graeff (1860-1919), 1901Tune: MY SAVIOR CARES by Joseph L. Hall (1866-1930), 1901Key signature: D flat major (5 flats)Time signature: 6/4Meter: 22.214.171.124. with RefrainPublic Domain1. 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?Refrain: 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.2. Does Jesus care when I’ve 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?3. Does Jesus care when I’ve said “goodbye” To dearest on earth to me, And my sad heart aches till it nearly breaks— Is it aught to Him? Does He see?
