1 When you my Jesus understand,
When you accept His loving hand,
A happy morn will dawn for you,
When you know Jesus, too.

When you know Him, when you know Him
You'll love Him just as others do;
A happy morn will dawn for you
When you know my Jesus, too.

2 His joy will gladden ev'ry day,
His blessing shine along the way,
And you will share His promise true,
When you know Jesus, too. [Chorus]

3 You'll see His mercy thro' your tears,
His peace will hallow all the years.
The valley holds no dread for you,
When you know Jesus, too. [Chorus]

4 You'll know His way is always best,
And gladly leave to Him the rest,
And tell what He has done for you,
When you know Jesus, too. [Chorus]
