393. There's within My Heart a Melody

1 There’s within my heart a melody,
Jesus whispers sweet and low,
"Fear not, I am with thee, peace, be still,"
In all of life’s ebb and flow.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus--
Sweetest name I know,
Fills my every longing,
Keeps me singing as I go.

2 All my life was wrecked by sin and strife,
Discord filled my heart with pain,
Jesus swept across the broken strings,
Stirred the slumb’ring chords again. (Refrain)

3 Feasting on the riches of His grace,
Resting ’neath His sheltering wing,
Always looking on His smiling face,
That is why I shout and sing. (Refrain)

4 Tho' sometimes He leads thro' waters deep,
Trials fall across my way,
Tho' sometimes the path seems rough and steep,
See His footprints all the way. (Refrain)

5 Soon He’s coming back to welcome me
Far beyond the starry sky;
I shall wing my flight to worlds unknown,
I shall reign with Him on high. (Refrain)
