Constantly Abiding

D                                                G
There’s a peace in my heart that the world never gave,
  D                    A7
A peace it cannot take away;
D                                             G
Though the trials of life may surround like a cloud,
       D              A         E7  A
I’ve a peace that has come here to stay!

 D                           A
Constantly abiding, Jesus is mine;
    A                 AY      D
Constantly abiding, rapture divine;
D                                         G
He never leaves me lonely, whispers, O so kind:
              D            G A7     D
“I will never leave thee,” Jesus is mine.

All the world seemed to sing of a Savior and King,
When peace sweetly came to my heart;
Troubles all fled away and my night turned to day,
Blessed Jesus, how glorious Thou art!


This treasure I have in a temple of clay,
While here on His footstool I roam;
But He’s coming to take me some glorious day,
Over there to my heavenly home!
