Though Loved Ones Vanish From My Side


Tho’ lov’d ones vanish from my side,
And grief and pain with me abide,
I still am fully satisfied-
I know that I have Jesus.

Refrain:
Jesus, Jesus,
Gentle, loving Jesus!
For life and for eternity,
I know that I have Jesus.

Tho’ heavy be my load of care,
And trials meet me ev’rywhere,
With patience I my cross will bear,-
I know that I have Jesus. [Refrain]

When Satan’s arrows round me fly,
And sin, a torrent, rushes by,
A never-failing friend is nigh,-
I know that I have Jesus. [Refrain]

And when the angel shall appear,
To call me thro’ the valley drear,
I shall not dread, nor doubt, nor fear,-
I know that I have Jesus. [Refrain]
