1 My heart overflowing with rapture would sing
Of Him, my Redeemer, Preserver, and King;
Whose name ever precious with joy I repeat,
While only a learner I sit at His feet.

In this my rejoicing and glory shall be,
The cross where my Saviour once suffered for me.

2 My heart overflowing His love would recall,
The chief among thousands and dearest of all;
How tender His mercies, how gentle His care,
How many the blessings that daily I share. [Refrain]

3 My heart overflowing draws near to His throne,
Who makes all my sorrows and trials His own;
He guards me from danger, protects me from ill,
He pities my weakness and comforts me still. [Refrain]

4 O cross of my Saviour, ‘tis there I will cling,
My heart overflowing its story shall sing;
Till faith bears me upward beyond the dark sea,
Where beautiful mansions are waiting for me. [Refrain]
