When My Savior Talks with Me

Representative Text

1 All the burdens once so heavy,
Light and easy seem to be;
In my soul is heaven’s sunshine
When my Savior talks with me.

In my heart a song is ringing,
Earth like heaven seems to be;
Life new joy to me is bringing
When my Savior talks with me.

2 Should my courage sometimes falter,
Still by faith His pow’r I see;
In my heart His words I’m hiding
When my Savior talks with me. [Refrain]

3 In my soul is peace and gladness,
Through His boundless grace so free;
Not a friend seems half so precious
When my Savior talks with me. [Refrain]

4 Not one promise has He broken,
Faithful to is trust is He;
Joy is mine beyond all measure
When my Savior talks with me. [Refrain]

Author: Lizzie DeArmond

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
