1 For grace that saved this soul of mine,
My heart sings hallelujah!
For healing streams of live divine,
My heart sings hallelujah!

Chorus:
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
My heart sings hallelujah!
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
My heart sings hallelujah!

2 For peace His presence doth afford,
My heart sings hallelujah!
For rest I find within His word,
My heart sings hallelujah! [Chorus]

3 For love that burns within my soul,
My heart sings hallelujah!
For Him who all my steps control,
My heart sings hallelujah! [Chorus]

4 For joy that He alone can give,
My heart sings hallelujah!
For faith that I with Him shall live,
My heart sings hallelujah! [Chorus]
