Does Jesus care when my heart is pained

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?
  O yes, He cares, I know He cares,
His heart is touched with my grief;
  When the days are weary,
  The long night dreary,
  I know my Savior cares.
Does Jesus care when my way is dark
With a nameless dread and fear?
  As the daylight fades
  Into deep night shades,
Does He care enough to be near?
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?
Does Jesus care when I’ve said “goodbye”
To the dearest on earth to me,
  And my sad heart aches
  Till it nearly breaks,
Is it aught to Him? Does He see?

This song was and a blessing to me. My grandson died and this was a great comfort to me. I sing it often and share it with my friends who grieving. Thank God for giving these songs to the writers of hymns. They are truly from the Holy Spirit.

Hallelujah. Many times this song comes to mind when I'm going through my tough times and sing it some time but they day its forcefully came into my spirit, so I decide to Google it. And YES Jesus Christ cares, no matter our struggles God care for us, and He is working behind the scenes for our good. So stay put, I'm encouraging some one as I encourage myself. Trust God to take you out, GOD can't fail. Hallelujah!

Yes He really care at all times. When I am passing through strong temptation, I always have the assurance that my God is closer to me and He cares and always plan good for me in every predicament.

I was really at a point where I had no idea if Any one cared if I lived or died. Then I heard Guy Penrod and George Beverly Shea sing this "does Jesus care when I've said good bye to the dearest on earth to me and my sad heart aches til it nearly breaks. I was so humbled by this. SOMEONE really cares.

I read in Then Sings My Soul, by Robert Cook the story behind this song. I am going to copy it and these words and send them to women on death row in the US.

With eyes clouded with tears as I thought about all my family and I are going through while doing my chores this morning, this song came to my spirit. I left all that am doing to sing it from the hymns. Lord You do care about me and my eyes are on You. I must testify of your goodness before I leave this world. Thank You Lord my saviour.

I was reminded by this song because sometimes I have doubted a lot of things. Even to the point, I doubted Him. But the reason why I realized many thing is because He did not let me go away from Him. He does care for me. His grace is sufficient for me. I just need to learn how to trust Him. To God

be all the Glory, from all praises and thanksgiving I have read.
