Doxologies: ‘Tis So Sweet
“‘Tis So Sweet” is a hymn inspired by great personal tragedy. Yet each stanza celebrates trust and dependency on the sure and steady rock of Jesus Christ in the face of hardship, trial, and uncertainty.
As a gift to the congregation of Reston Bible Church, the RBC worship team composed a new musical arrangement and wrote additional lyrics to the original version of “‘Tis So Sweet,” which was written by Louisa M. R. Stead in 1882. Even though this is a song born from tragedy, there is an even deeper root of joy we felt would bless our church family as we celebrate the goodness of Jesus over all facets of life.
For a limited time, you can download the live and studio versions of “‘Tis So Sweet” using the buttons below. The song is also available at iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, and Google Play.
To guide your reflection as you listen to this song, we have created a devotional that includes the lyrics as well as seven days’ worth of Scripture readings and questions. We pray that this will enrich the words to you and deepen your trust in the Lord as you sing.
