Lyrics

O the love of Jesus
Means so much to me,
Keeps my pathway shining,
Keeps me pure and free;
More and more I praise Him,
For He seems to be
Sweeter as the days go by.

Refrain

Sweeter as the days go by,
Sweeter as the moments fly;
He’s always drawing nearer,
And to me His love is dearer,
Sweeter as the days go by.

Precious, loving Savior,
All along the way,
Words of cheer and comfort
I have heard Him say;
And He grows more precious
To my soul each day,
Sweeter as the days go by.

Refrain

He, I know, will keep me,
He will hold me fast
Till my earthly trials
Be forever past;
He will be, until I see
His face at last,
Sweeter as the days go by.
