Representative Text

1 There is a secret tried and true,
When you with trouble meet;
You may have peace you never knew,
If you just keep sweet.

Keep sweet, keep sweet,
This is the only way;
This is the way to win the day,
If you just keep sweet.

2 When evil tempts, without, within,
Fly to the mercy-seat;
Jesus will save you from your sin,
And will keep you sweet. [Chorus]

3 When all around you things go wrong,
Ev’rywhere seems defeat,
You may be happy all day long,
If you just keep sweet. [Chorus]

4 When you are grieved and sorely tried,
Fall at the Master’s feet;
Pardon and peace are not denied,
If you just keep sweet. [Chorus]
