It's Just Like His Great Love

1 John 3:1
"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us,
that we should be called the sons of God:  therefore the world
knoweth us not, because it knew him not."

          A Friend I have, called Jesus, Whose love is strong and true,
          And never fails how e'er 'tis tried, No matter what I do;
          I've sinned against this love of His, But when I knelt to pray,
          Confessing all my guilt to Him, The sin clouds rolled away.

            Chorus
            It's just like Jesus to roll the clouds away,
            It's just like Jesus to keep me day by day,
            It's just like Jesus all along the way,
            It's just like His great love.

          Sometimes the clouds of trouble, Bedim the sky above,
          I cannot see my Savior's face, I doubt His wondrous love;
          But He, from Heaven's mercy seat, Beholding my despair,
          In pity bursts the clouds between, And shows me He is there.

            Chorus
            It's just like Jesus to roll the clouds away,
            It's just like Jesus to keep me day by day,
            It's just like Jesus all along the way,
            It's just like His great love.

          When sorrow's clouds o'er take me, And break upon my head,
          When life seems worse than useless, And I were better dead;
          I take my grief to Jesus then, Nor do I go in vain,
          For heav'nly hope He gives that cheers Like sunshine after rain.

            Chorus
            It's just like Jesus to roll the clouds away,
            It's just like Jesus to keep me day by day,
            It's just like Jesus all along the way,
            It's just like His great love.

          O I could sing forever, Of Jesus' love divine,
          Of all His care and tenderness, For this poor life of mine;
          His love is in and over all, And wind and waves obey,
          When Jesus whispers "Peace be still" And rolls the clouds away.

            Chorus
            It's just like Jesus to roll the clouds away,
            It's just like Jesus to keep me day by day,
            It's just like Jesus all along the way,
            It's just like His great love.
