746. He Keeps Me Singing

1 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.

Refrain:
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus -
Sweetest name I know,
Fills my every longing,
Keeps me singing as I go.

2 All my life was wrecked by sin and strife;
Discord filled my heart with pain.
Jesus swept across the broken strings,
Stirred the slumb'ring chords again. [Refrain]

3 Feasting on the riches of His grace,
Resting 'neath His shelt'ring wing,
Always looking on His smiling face -
That is why I shout and sing. [Refrain]

4 Tho' sometimes He leads thro' waters deep,
Trials fall across the way;
Tho' sometimes the path seems rough and steep,
See His footprints all the way. [Refrain]

5 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. [Refrain]
