1 There’s a song in my heart that will ring evermore;
‘Tis a song that will swell on the shining shore;
And my wonderful Savior its theme shall be,
When I think of His love for me.

Refrain:
When I think of His love for me,
Of His mercies abundant and free;
Hallelujahs of joy my lips employ,
When I think of His love for me.

2 There are blessings unnumbered as stars in the sky,
Daily blessings that will every need supply;
And His goodness appears like a boundless sea,
When I think of His love for me. [Refrain]

3 All my troubles grow less as I look at the cross,
There’s a glorious gain for each passing loss;
Earthly clouds, like the mists of the mountain flee,
When I think of His love for me. [Refrain]

4 So unmeasured His grace to a sinner has been,
Living jewels for Him I would gladly win;
True and faithful to Jesus, I long to be,
When I think of His love for me. [Refrain]
