Lyrics

I have a song that Je­sus gave me,
It was sent from Heav’n above;
There ne­ver was a sweeter melody,
’Tis the melody of love.

Refrain

In my heart there rings a melody,
There rings a melody with Hea­ven’s harmony;
In my heart there rings a melody,
There rings a melody of love.

I love the Christ who died on Calv’ry,
For He washed my sins away;
He put within my heart a melody,
And I know it’s there to stay.

Refrain

’Twill be my endless theme in glo­ry,
With the angels I will sing;
’Twill be a song with glo­ri­ous harmony,
When the courts of Hea­ven ring.
