1 There is gladness in my soul,
There is joy beyond control,
Since Jesus reigns within;
For He drives all sin away,
And He brings the perfect day,
Since Jesus reigns within.

Refrain:
Since Jesus reigns within,
Since Jesus reigns within;
There is peace that fills the soul,
There is joy beyond control,
Since Jesus reigns within.

2 There is rapture, there is peace,
That forever will increase,
Since Jesus reigns within;
There are blessings waiting me,
There is glorious victory,
Since Jesus reigns within. [Refrain]

3 I am never left alone,
When I am the Lord’s alone,
Since Jesus reigns within;
And it makes my soul rejoice,
When by faith I hear His voice,
Since Jesus reigns within. [Refrain]

4 I have heaven in my soul,
Tho’ the billows ‘round me roll,
Since Jesus reigns within;
As I press my onward way
To the land of perfect day,
Since Jesus reigns within. [Refrain]
