Keep a song in your heart

Full Text

1 Keep a song in your heart for the road is long,
You will need it to make you good and strong;
If you look to the Lord, tho' rough the way,
He will give you a song both night and day.

Chorus:
Keep a song in your heart when things go wrong,
Keep a song in your heart, a happy song;
All the troubles of life will soon depart
If you keep a song ringing in your heart.

2 Keep a song in your heart whatsoe'er betide;
Think of those who are walking by your side;
With a voice full of joy, and smiling face,
You will help make the world a happy place. [Chorus]

3 Keep a song in your heart as you onward go,
And a blessing on those around bestow;
He is watching to see if you are true;
He's the dear loving Christ who died for you. [Chorus]
