Wonderful song!!! .... Back in the days it was used in as an invitation song in gospel services and I tell as a child you really felt His eyes looking across at you.

It was written by my grandfather, E.J. Rollings. He passed in 1974. I'm happy to see so many people have been touched by it.

Rebecca, it is so moving and touching and so thoughtful of you to reply about your grandfather who wrought this very heart touching and long lasting song that moved millions throughout the years. Thanks so much, it means a lot to all of us taking the time and acknowledging this and bringing this to light. I have many songs that God brings to my mind, in the Holy Ghost, throughout the day and this came this morning to me, thus the reason I looked it up. I'm 58. Many in this new generation never heard these heart touching songs. Thank you for the legendary E. J. Rollings. We will never forget. My prayers are with you today and your family. God bless you dearly.

the way my grandfather sang it in '52

Are your crosses too heavy to carry;
And burdens too heavy to bear?
Are there heartaches and tears and anguish;
And there's no one who seems to care?

Standing somewhere in the shadows you'll find Jesus,
He's the Friend who always cares and understands.
Standing somewhere in the shadows you will find Him
And you'll know Him by the nail prints in His hands.

Are there shadows of deep disappointment,
And trusts that have proven untrue?
Has the darkness of night settled round you
Has your hope and your faith wavered too?

Standing somewhere in the shadows you'll find Jesus,
He's the Friend who always cares and understands.
Standing somewhere in the shadows you will find Him
And you'll know Him by the nail prints in His hands.

Has the storm over shadowed your sunshine,
And life lost attraction for you?
Have the dreams that you cherished been broken,
Is you soul filled with bitterness too?

Standing somewhere in the shadows you'll find Jesus,
He's the Friend who always cares and understands.
Standing somewhere in the shadows you will find Him
