Words and music by Bertha Mae Lillenas (1889-1945)Key signature: B flat major (2 flats)Time signature: 6/8Meter: 10.10.10.6 with RefrainPublic Domain1. Sometimes our skies are cloudy and dreary, Sometimes our hearts and burdened with care; But we may know, whate’er may befall us, Jesus is always there.Refrain: Never a burden that He doth not carry, Never a sorrow that He doth not share; Whether the days may be sunny or dreary, Jesus is always there.2. When in the midst of life with its problems, Bent with our toil and burdens we bear; Wonderful thought and deep consolation: Jesus is always there.3. When we are walking through the green pastures, Or over mountains rugged and bare; Precious the thought and sweet the assurance, Jesus is always there.4. “Lo, I am with you alway,” is written, God will not fail to answer our prayer; Trusting His Word, we rest on His promise– Jesus is always there.
