1 Sweet communion is mine with Jesus,
Since I have chosen the better part,
Forth I go on my way rejoicing,
There’s always a song in my heart.

There’s always a song,
Always a song,
A beautiful song in my heart;
Savior divine, since thou art mine,
There’s always a song in my heart.

2 Oh, how pleasant to walk beside him,
Doing the things he would have me do;
Blessed mission to bring to others
A Savior so precious and true. [Refrain]

3 When temptations and doubts o’ertake me,
He is a faithful and present aid;
More than conqueror since I trust him,
No longer my soul is dismayed. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ the shadows may close around me,
Weeping endure thro’ the fleeting night,
Mine the Comforter, soon the morning
Shall dawn on my glorified sight. [Refrain]
