1. Within my heart a praise o’erflowing;

’Tis the gracious Lord, my song;

There never was a song so excellent;

Heaven’s joys to me belong.


In my heart there springs a melody,

The sweetest melody,

A song so heavenly.

In my heart there springs a melody,

There springs a melody of love.


2. O wondrous love, the Lord has saved me,

Granting me new life and joy;

Amazing grace! He’s living now in me;

Grace and love I now enjoy.


In my heart there springs a melody,

The sweetest melody,

A song so heavenly.

In my heart there springs a melody,

There springs a melody of love.


3. O light of life, my Lord now leads me,

Step by step this song I raise;

O perfect peace, Christ now abides in me,

Welling up in psalms of praise.


In my heart there springs a melody,

The sweetest melody,

A song so heavenly.

In my heart there springs a melody,

There springs a melody of love.

Where the vict’ry song we’ll sing;

O what an honor, reigning with the Lord;

Angels’ celebrations ring.


In my heart there springs a melody,

The sweetest melody,

A song so heavenly.

In my heart there springs a melody,

There springs a melody of love.

Living water flowing free;

The tree of life with fruits abundant, sweet,

Satisfies eternally.


In my heart there springs a melody,

The sweetest melody,

A song so heavenly.

In my heart there springs a melody,

There springs a melody of love.
