96. He Keeps Me Singing

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 ev'ry 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. [Chorus]

3 Feasting on the riches of His grace,
Resting 'neath His shelt'ring wing,
Always looking on His smiling face -
That is why I shout and sing. [Chorus]

4 Tho sometimes He leads through waters deep,
Trials fall across the way;
Tho sometimes the path seems rough and steep,
See His footprints all the way. [Chorus]

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. [Chorus]
