1 There's a song my heart is singing,
In my soul its tones are ringing,
Peace and rest and joy 't is bringing,
Jesus Christ has power to save!

Sing it o'er again to me
In its sweet simplicity,
Tell it o'er the ocean wave,
Jesus Christ has power to save.

2 Oh, that song my soul is thrilling,
Jesus saves the soul that's willing,
Precious truth my heart 't is filling,
Jesus Christ has power to save! [Chorus]

3 Sinner come, if thou 'lt receive Him,
Look to Jesus and believe Him,;
All your life and service give Him,
Jesus Christ has power to save!
