Lyrics

Verse 1
Failing in strength when opprest by my foes,
Somebody knows, Somebody knows;
Waiting for some one to banish my woes,
Somebody knows, – ’tis Jesus.

Chorus
Somebody knows, Somebody knows
When I am tempted and tried by my foes;
He is the One who will keep me –
Somebody knows – ’tis Jesus.

Verse 2
Why should I fear when the care-billows roll?
Somebody knows, Somebody knows;
When the deep shadows sweep over my soul,
Somebody knows – ’tis Jesus.

Verse 3
Wounded and helpless and sick with distress,
Somebody knows, Somebody knows;
Longing for home and a mother’s caress,
Somebody knows – ’tis Jesus.
