HE KNOWS JUST WHAT I NEED
(Words & music by Mosie Lister)

My Jesus knows when I am lonely;
He knows each pain, He sees each tear.
He understands each lonely heartache,
He understands and always cares.

CHORUS
My Jesus knows just what I need.
Oh yes, He knows just what I need.
He satisfies, and every need supplies.
Yes, He knows just what I need.

My Jesus knows when I am burdened;
He knows how much my heart can bear.
He lifts me up when I am sinking,
And brings me joy beyond compare.
CHORUS

When other friends seem to forget me,
When skies are dark, when hope seems gone.
By faith I feel His arms about me,
And hear Him say, "You're not alone."
CHORUS
