Representative Text

1 There is gladness in my spirit, there is sunshine in my soul,
For I walk and talk with Jesus day by day;
And I love Him, dearly love Him, who redeemed and made me whole;
O ‘tis love that keeps me singing on my way.

Refrain:
O ‘tis love that keeps me singing,
Love of Jesus, true and strong,
Glorifies my sweetest song;
O ‘tis love that keeps me singing,
Keeps me singing on my way.

2 Like the birds that wake the woodlands with their melody of song,
Like the streamlet making music in its flow,
I will make the world the brighter as I pass my way along;
For ‘tis love that keeps me singing as I go. [Refrain]

3 If the heart is always happy with the love of Christ within,
Then the face will wreathe His praises in a smile;
I will do my duty gladly in this world of strife and sin,
And His love will keep me singing all the while. [Refrain]
