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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
Sweetest name I know,
Fills my ev’ry longing,
Keeps me singing as I go.
Luther Bridgers, 1910
Read Psalm 40:1-5
(Music is an amazing gift, and it is no wonder that the wonder and joy of what Christ has done for us and in us moves us to sing. Has He put a song in your heart? Don’t be bashful about singing it.)
