56. There's Music in My Soul!

1 The world is full of singing,
I hear it everywhere;
The flow'rs their bells are ringing
Out on the scented air:
And up above, around me,
The silent anthems roll:
The glorious Lord has found me,
There's music in my soul!

Chorus:
The blood of Christ is flowing,
Its waves around me roll;
My heart with love is glowing,
There's music in my soul!

2 My heart was fond of sighing,
With just some breaks of song,
As self was ever trying
To make its weakness strong;
But now in him confiding,
His Word has made me whole,
And e'er in Christ abiding,
There's music in my soul! [Chorus]

3 My life was full of sadness,
Of overweighting care;
But now the "oil of gladness"
Has turn'd to praise the pray'r:
And so I keep pursuing,
And pressing t'ward the goal;
But praying, waiting, doing,
There's music in my soul! [Chorus]

4 And so my heart keeps clinging
To the dear Master's Word;
And it is always singing,
Just like a springtime bird:
I know not what the harps be,
Where heav'nly anthems roll;
I know that heav'n is near me,
There's music in my soul. [Chorus]
