He Keeps Me Singing

G                 A7
There’s within my heart a melody
D7	           G        D7
Jesus whispers sweet and low:
   G                A7
"Fear not I am with thee. Peace be still."
D7               G
In all of life’s ebb and flow.


  G           D7
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus;
Sweetest name I know.
Fills my every longing;
  D7                    G
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 slumb’ring chords again.

Feasting in 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 me through waters deep,
Trials fall across the way;
Though sometimes the path seems rough and steep;
I 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.
