Representative Text

1 When Jesus is living within my heart,
There’s joy and sweet peace all the day;
I walk in the sunshine of love and grace,
He rolls all my burden away.

Refrain:
When Jesus is living within,
When Jesus is living within,
His glory divine
Each moment doth shine,
When Jesus is living within.

2 His presence dispels ev’ry doubt and fear,
To Him ev’ry thought I confide;
I’m walking in unison with my Lord,
For now in His love I abide. [Refrain]

3 Unspeakable blessings of grace and love
My Saviour delights to bestow;
His blessed companionship sweeter grows,
As onward and upward I go. [Refrain]

4 When Jesus is living within my heart,
Alone I can nevermore be,
And some day, He tells me, in heav’n above
His glorious face I shall see. [Refrain]
