TIS SO SWEET




íTis so sweet just to know, as I with my Savior go,
If I heed every sacred command
That when sorrows betide I may in the refuge hide;
He upholds me secure with His hand.

íTis so sweet just to know that my Father loves me so,
He will list to my heartís faintest cry:
I will trust in His grace, for I see His smiling face,
íTis so sweet just to know He is nigh.



íTis so sweet just to feel, as before Him low I kneel,
That He knows all my burdens and needs,
Counts each one of my tears, bids me cease from all my fears;
And His Spirit for me intercedes.

íTis so sweet just to know that my Father loves me so,
He will list to my heartís faintest cry:
I will trust in His grace, for I see His smiling face,
íTis so sweet just to know He is nigh.



Iíll rejoice in the shame when I suffer for His name,
He will only permit what is best;
Holy angels are near those who walk in godly fear,
íTis so sweet just to trust Him and rest.

íTis so sweet just to know that my Father loves me so,
He will list to my heartís faintest cry:
I will trust in His grace, for I see His smiling face,
íTis so sweet just to know He is nigh.



Oh, how sweet it will be when my Savior I shall see,
In His presence to dwell evermore!
I will share in the loss and reproaches of His cross,
For the joy that is waiting before.

íTis so sweet just to know that my Father loves me so,
He will list to my heartís faintest cry:
I will trust in His grace, for I see His smiling face,
íTis so sweet just to know He is nigh.
