1 There's a song of joy, I sing it ev'ry day,
For my ev'ry sin the Lord has washed away;
Trusting in His word, I yield to His control,
Since the loving Jesus saved my soul.
(Since Jesus saved my soul.)

Chorus:
My heart keeps right since Jesus saved my soul;
My ev'ry tho't is under His control;
With songs of joy I'm pressing tow'rd the goal;
My heart keeps right since Jesus saved my soul.

2 As I live for Him each burden seems so light;
While He walks with me my heart is keeping right;
In the narrow way I'm pressing tow'rd the goal,
Since the loving Jesus saved my soul.
(Since Jesus saved my soul.) [Chorus]

3 All my doubts are past, I am secure at last;
Tho' my strength may fail, my anchor holdeth fast;
Tho' I once was lost, His grace hath made me whole,
Since the loving Jesus saved my soul.
(Since Jesus saved my soul.) [Chorus]

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.
