Nobody knows the trouble I've seen
Trouble I've seen
Trouble I've seen
These weary days I've spent traveling along

So you think you know the trouble I've seen
Trouble I've seen
Trouble I've seen
Well, tell me friend, do you travel all alone

I can't tell you bout all this trouble I've seen
Trouble I've seen
Trouble I've seen
There's no words for such a sad, sad song

There was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief
Acquainted with grief
Acquainted with grief
And now he walks with me all the day long

He took my sins and he washed them all away
Washed them all away
Washed them all away
When he shed his last drop of blood on the cross

And one day soon I shall look upon his face
Look upon his face
Look upon his face
With that holy, golden throng

He shed his blood for those who would take him by faith
Take him by faith
Take him by faith
And he promised he would welcome them home

He'll do the same for you if you'll trust him today
Trust him today
Trust him today
To eternal life, Jesus is they way

Won't you let this man Jesus save you by his grace
Save you by his grace
Save you by his grace
And you too will live forever long

In that land where no more sorrow dwells
No more sorrow dwells
No more sorrow dwells
Oh, sinner friend, please don't go to Hell

Oh, sinner friend, please don't go to hell
Please don't go to Hell
Please don't go to Hell
Don't dare wait until it's too late
