No one on earth understands my distress;
Nor of my burdens does anyone guess.

No one on earth understands my distress;
Nor of my burdens does anyone guess.
I, for myself, hardly know my own heart;
Scarcely can sort my emotions apart.

Only my God knows the anguish I feel.
He is the one unto whom I appeal:
Show me the love that from Calvary flows,
Healing the sorrows that nobody knows.

Looking to you, my dear Savior, I pray:
Take all my shame and confusion away;
Help me with troubles beyond my control;
Strengthen and comfort and settle my soul.
