Sam Cooke – Jesus, Wash Away My Troubles lyrics

Jesus, wash away my troubles
While I'm traveling here below
For I, I got enemies, Lord, you know
And Jesus, wash away my burdens
For they are so hard to bear

But I know there's consolation
As long as I know you're there, yes, it is
As long as I know you're there, yes, it is

You know sometimes I feel like a motherless child
I'm a long way from home
You know sometimes I feel like I'm almost gone
A long way from home

But Jesus, take me on to glory
Lord, when I, when I die
For I know that day is coming
Is coming by and by
