1 I’ve the Blesser and the blessing,
Within my soul today;
My life is filled with sunshine,
Since He came in to stay.

Yes, I have them both today,
And its glory, its glory along the way;
Ev’ry day he gives rich blessings,
Which thrill me thro’ and thro’,
For I have the Blesser and the blessing, too.

2 In this world where sin is striving
To lure us from the goal;
We need the Blesser dwelling
Each day within the soul. [Refrain]

3 I’m so glad I found the Blesser,
Received the blessing too;
He filled my life with gladness,
He’ll do the same for you. [Refrain]
