A Joy In My Heart
by Katharine Purvis
There's a joy in my heart that shall ever abide
'Tis a joy to the world that unknown;
For in undying love Jesus came seeking me,
And he bro't me again to His own.
I am walking with Jesus in fellowship sweet,
And His glory sweeps over my soul;
All my burdens and sorrows I lay at His feet,
And my spirit is ev'ry whit whole.
Sin can harm me no more, for my Saviour and Guide
Is so near me I never can stray;
In His care and protection I safely abide,
And His love shelters me ev'ry day.
O the sweet and precious joy he gives,
As I walk by His side day by day,
In my heart the blessed Saviour lives,
And His love brightens all the way.
