Representative Text

1 When you know my blessed Saviour,
Life will wear a different hue,
Through the many clouds of trouble,
You will see the starry blue.

When you know Him, when you know Him,
When you know Him you will love my Saviour too;
When you know Him, O how you’ll love Him,
When you know how Jesus loves and cares for you.

2 When you know my blessed Saviour,
All your fear will pass away
Like the dew before the sunshine,
At the breaking of the day. [Refrain]

3 When you know my blessed Saviour,
Memory will bring the tears;
When you think of how He loved you,
Through the dark and wasted years. [Refrain]
