Representative Text

1 ‘Tis blessed to have Jesus with me,
When dangers my pathway oppose,
And when I am heavily-laden,
‘Tis blessed to know that He knows.

Refrain:
I trust in His love, and He leads me—
I follow wherever He goes—
And tho’ I may see not His purpose,
‘Tis blessed to know that He knows.

2 ‘Tis blessed to have Jesus with me,
When sorrows around me shall close—
And when all is darkness before me,
‘Tis blessed to know that He knows. [Refrain]

3 How great are the blessings He gives me—
And great is the mercy He shows—
He knows why my trials are needful,
And I am so glad that He known. [Refrain]
