622. 'Tis So Sweet

1 ’Tis so sweet just to know, as I with my Savior go,
If I heed every sacred command
That when sorrows betide I may in the refuge hide;
He upholds me secure with His hand.

Refrain:
’Tis so sweet just to know that my Father loves me so,
He will list to my heart’s faintest cry:
I will trust in His grace, for I see His smiling face,
’Tis so sweet just to know He is nigh.

2 ’Tis so sweet just to feel, as before Him low I kneel,
That He knows all my burdens and needs,
Counts each one of my tears, bids me cease from all my fears;
And His Spirit for me intercedes. [Refrain]

3 I’ll rejoice in the shame when I suffer for His name,
He will only permit what is best;
Holy angels are near those who walk in godly fear,
’Tis so sweet just to trust Him and rest. [Refrain]

4 Oh, how sweet it will be when my Savior I shall see,
In His presence to dwell evermore!
I will share in the loss and reproaches of His cross,
For the joy that is waiting before. [Refrain]
