1 There is something in my soul
Which keeps the shadows all away;
It is love, my Savior’s love!
Something lightens every burden,
Gives me gladness day by day,
It is love, my Savior’s love.

O the precious love of Jesus,
How it thrills my ransomed soul!
More and more I’ll sing its praises
While the happy ages roll.

2 When the tempter tries to win me
Something keeps me true and strong;
It is love, my Savior’s love!
Something makes my life a blessing
To the needy in the throng,
It is love, my Savior’s love. [Refrain]

3 When misfortune overtakes me
Something calms my troubled breast;
It is love, my Savior’s love!
Something draws my soul to heaven,
That sweet land of peace and rest.
It is love, my Savior’s love. [Refrain]

4 Soul astray and bowed in sorrow,
Something waits for you today;
It is love, my Savior’s love!
It would give you peace and comfort,
Make your burdens roll away,
It is love, my Savior’s love. [Refrain]
