Representative Text

1. There’s a home in my heart for Jesus,
In the heart He has cleansed from sin;
’Tis the shrine of a deep devotion,
And my Savior abides within.

There’s a home in my heart,
And Jesus abides within;
He will always be a friend to me,
There’s a home in my heart for Him.

2. There’s a home in my heart for Jesus,
There’s a sympathy rare and sweet;
There are days of divine communion,
When His presence is bliss complete. [Refrain]

3. There’s a home in my heart for Jesus,
And He whispers that all is well;
In the light of His love abiding,
There’s a joy that no words can tell. [Refrain]
