1 ‘Tis sweet to read His blessed word,
And know each line is true;
To know His hand from day to day
Will lead me safely through.
He holds my hand, my gentle Savior,
All along the weary way;
While the shadows deeply hover,
And the sunlight fades away.
Oh, let me cling to him believing
In his mighty pow’r and love;
He holds my hand secure forever,
Through the paths that lead above.
2 ‘Tis sweet to hear his loving voice
In all that’s good and pure;
To know that when I walk with him,
My path is safe and sure. [Refrain]
3 ‘Tis sweet to know that someone cares
When sorrows fill my heart;
To know his hand will dry my tears,
When I have done my part. [Refrain]
4 ‘Tis sweet to feel this Friend so near
When trials overtake;
Who gave his life that I might live,
Enduring for my sake. [Refrain]
