Because He Was Tempted

He knows when shadows come my way
And penetrate my path.
He knows when I'm the recipient
Of someone's stinging wrath.

He knows when others do rejoice
When hopes are swept away.
He knows as does no other
When words do whip and flay.

He knows the heartache and the woe
Of false accusation too.
There's not a thing that can happen
But that He has been through.

He knows because He was tempted
In all points like as we.
We have such a loving High Priest
A refuge to whom we flee.
