1. He knows the bitter; weary way,

The endless striving day by day,

The souls that weep, the souls that pray;

My Father knows, my Father knows.

2 He knows when faint and worn we sink,

How deep the pain, how near the brink

Of dark despair we pause and shrink;

My Father knows, my Father knows

3. He knows how hard the fight has been,

The clouds that come our lives between,

The wounds the world has never seen;

My father knows, my Father knows.

4. He knows! O heart, take up thy cross,

And know earth’s treasures are but dross,

And all will prove as gain, not loss;

My Father knows, my Father knows.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
