Representative Text

1 In my heart there rings a song of gladness,
Praises rise unceasing to my King;
By His love He banishes my sadness,
And my lips His praises ever sing.

Ringing, my heart is ringing with His praise,
Singing, my lips are singing all the days,
Come what may of good or ill,
I will shout His praises still,
For my heart is ringing with His praise.

2 In my heart there is a peace abiding,
Peace which nothing ever can destroy;
While in Jesus’ love I am confiding,
Earthly cares can nevermore annoy. [Refrain]

3 In my heart is joy which knows no measure,
That is why such songs of praise abound,
Oh, that all the world could know the treasure,
Which in Christ the Saviour I have found. [Refrain]

4 Oh, the joy which in my heart is ringing,
Springs from fountains of eternal love,
And the song my lips are always singing,
Is a hymn of praise to God above. [Refrain]
