There's a joy forever in my heart

Representative Text

1 There’s a joy forever in my heart since Jesus came,
Like a stream of sunshine night and day;
In my soul ‘tis ringing like a blessed, sweet refrain,
Since my Saviour has the right of way.

Refrain:
The right of way, the right of way,
Since my Saviour has the right of way,
His love divine I know is mine,
Since my Saviour has the right of way.

2 I have peace unmeasured, there is vict’ry in my soul,
All His love I never can repay;
Not in part, but fully have I yielded Him control,
Since my Saviour has the right of way. [Refrain]

3 Life is glad and happy, how my heart exultant sings,
He is with me evermore to stay;
I’ve a Friend unfailing in the mighty King of kings,
Since my Saviour has the right of way. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
