Lyrics to Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen

Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen

chorus:

Nobody knows the trouble I've seen
Nobody knows but Jesus
Nobody knows the trouble I've seen
Glory hallelujah!

verses:

Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down
Oh yes, Lord
Sometimes I'm almost to the ground
Oh yes, Lord

(chorus)

Now you may think that I don't know
Oh yes, Lord
But I've had my troubles here below
Oh yes, Lord

(chorus)

One day when I was walkin' along
Oh yes, Lord
The sky opened up and love come down
Oh yes, Lord

(chorus)

I never shall forget that day
Oh yes, Lord
When Jesus washed my sins away
Oh yes, Lord

(chorus)
