1 What a solace for my sorrow,
Jesus knows, Jesus knows;
Never mind about tomorrow,
Jesus knows, Jesus knows;
Let it bring whate’er it will,
It shall prove a blessing still
If I only do His will,
Jesus knows, Jesus knows;
If I only do His will,
Jesus knows.

2 What a balm for my poor heart,
Jesus loves, Jesus loves;
Never, never will we part,
Jesus loves, Jesus loves;
He, Himself, has chosen me,
His, and His alone to be,
Now and thro’ eternity,
Jesus loves, Jesus loves;
Now and thro’ eternity,
Jesus loves.

3 What a force my arm to nerve,
Jesus helps, Jesus helps;
His most blessèd cause to serve,
Jesus helps, Jesus helps;
Helps me in the fiercest fight,
Helps me put my foes to flight,
Helps my weakness with His might,
Jesus helps, Jesus helps;
Helps my weakness with His might,
Jesus helps.

4 What a sound my soul to cheer,
Jesus comes, Jesus comes;
Hark! the Bridegroom’s almost here,
Jesus comes, Jesus comes;
Comes, His saints to sanctify,
Comes, His bride to glorify,
Comes to take us to the sky,
Jesus comes, Jesus comes;
Comes to take us to the sky,
Jesus comes.
