I've a joy in my heart

Representative Text

1 I’ve a joy in my heart that I’m longing to tell,
For a spirit of beauty has come there to dwell;
‘Tis the gladness I feel as I hope day by day,
That my Savior has taken my sins all away.

There’s a joy in my heart,
That I’m longing to tell,
‘Tis the trust that my Savior has come there to dwell.

2 Once a dear gentle stranger knocked soft at my door,
I had heard of his mercy full often before;
But a cold stubborn heart had rejected the call,
But He now is my Savior, my Master, my all. [Refrain]

3 There’s a fountain of love opened, clear as the day,
In the depths of my bosom since He came to stay;
And it brightens and deepens the longer the flow,
Would that all this salvation of Jesus might know. [Refrain]
