there's within my heart a melody

There's within my heart a melody
Jesus whispers sweet and low:
Fear not, I am with thee, peace, be still,
in all of life's ebb and flow.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
sweetest name I know,
fills my every longing,
keeps me singing as I go.

All my life was wrecked by sin and strife,
discord filled my heart with pain;
Jesus swept across the broken strings,
stirred the slumbering chords again.

Though sometimes he leads through waters deep,
trials fall across the way,
though sometimes the path seems rough and steep,
see his footprints all the way.

Feasting on the riches of his grace,
resting neath his sheltering wing,
always looking on his smiling face,

that is why I shout and sing.

Soon he's coming back to welcome me
far beyond the starry sky;
I shall wing my flight to worlds unknown;
I shall reign with him on high.

  1. Greetings from Wordwise Hymns. Thanks for the colourful posting of Luther Bridgers' joyful gospel song. It was written after a time of terrible tragedy in his life--suggested by the line "Though sometimes He leads through waters deep." It's a wonderful thing when the Lord gives us songs in the night.
