1 There's a very sweet song in the depths of my soul,
And I'll sing it, dear Jesus, to Thee,
While my lips chant the praise which I cannot control
For the love wherwith Thou hast loved me.
O thy wonderful love is so precious to me,
And Thy grace is so rich and so free,
That my lips fill with praise which I cannot control
For the love wherewith Thou hast loved me.
2 I will sing of the peace in the depths of my soul,
Such a peace as the world cannot know.
Thro' Thy grace I am sweetly and consciously whole,
And my heart is washed white as the snow. [Chorus]
3 I will sing of the joy in the depths of my soul,
Of Thy wondrous forgiveness of sin,
Of the gladness that springs from Thy love's sweet control
And Thy presence and power within. [Chorus]
4 O Thy love is more sweet that the breath of the flow'rs!
'Tis a foretaste and earnest of heav'n,
And it fills with contentment and rapture the hours
That to me Thou hast graciously given. [Chorus]
