"Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen"

           
      Chorus:    
   
Nobody knows the trouble I've seen,
Nobody knows my knows but Jesus (my sorrow).
Nobody knows the troubles I've seen,
Glory Hallelujah.
   
    1. Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down,
Oh yes, Lord.
Sometimes I'm almost to the ground,
Oh yes, Lord.
   
      Chorus    
   
2.
Now, you may think that I don't know,
Oh yes, Lord.
But I've had troubles here below,
Oh yes, Lord.

 
      Chorus    
    3. One day when I was walkin' along,
Oh yes, Lord,
The sky opened up and love came down,
Oh yes, Lord.
   
      Chorus    
    4. I never shall forget that day,
Oh yes, Lord.
When Jesus washed my sins away.
Oh yes, Lord.
   
      Chorus

Oh yes, Lord.
Tell all my friends I'm comin' too,
Oh yes, Lord.
