Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

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]
