The United Methodist Hymnal


There's Within My Heart a Melody

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.

	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 slumbering chords again. [Refrain]

3.	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. [Refrain]

4.	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. [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]
