This is How I Know

About the Song

The 5/4 time signature of this song may seem a little scary if you’re not accustomed to it. After you get used to it, I think you’ll find that it’s fairly natural. To make it easier, just think 3/4 + 2/4 for this one.

This song is part of the “Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee” cantata.

Had I seen the leper healed at His command
Had I witnessed wonders wrought by Jesus’ hand
Had I heard Him teaching by the peaceful sea
I could not know more surely of His love for me

Had I heard his voice and followed where He led
Had I been among the multitudes He fed
Had I knelt before Him, learning at His feet
I could not know more surely of His love for me

For I have come before the Father’s throne in prayer
I have felt in answer sweet assurance there
That Jesus is my Savior, Counselor and Friend
Whose everlasting love redeems my soul from sin

He is strength unto the weary, sight unto the blind
Help in all our trial, Healer of mankind
This is the conviction born within my soul
The Spirit bears Him witness
This is how I know

This is the conviction born within my soul
The Spirit bears Him witness
This is how I know

    We have a care center in our LDS stake which the wards take turns taking Sacrament Meeting to. I sang this song at their meeting this morning and received a lot of compliments with everyone telling me how much they loved the message of the song. Thank you for sharing so freely!
