Lyrics

There is constant joy abiding
In Christ my Lord and king;
Of His love that passeth knowledge
My heart and tongue shall sing.

Refrain

He is all in all to me,
And my song of songs shall be,
Hallelujah, O my Savior,
I am trusting only Thee.

When my path is veiled in shadows,
And clouds above me roll,
I can smile amid the tempest,
His glory fills my soul.

Refrain

I can see His bow of promise
Through tears and trials deep;
I can hear His voice like music,
That lulls my care to sleep.

Refrain

I shall yet behold and praise Him,
And dwell in perfect peace
In the golden land of beauty,
Where cloud and wave shall cease.
