Lyrics

You ask what makes me hap­py
The whole day long,
Why I am al­ways sing­ing
A glad­some song;
Ah, well I do re­mem­ber
When song be­gan to start,
’Twas Je­sus set the mu­sic
Ringing in my heart.

Refrain

In my heart,
He set the mu­sic ring­ing,
In my life
A heav’n­ly glad­ness bring­ing;
Ah, well do I re­mem­ber
When song be­gan to start,
’Twas Je­sus set the mu­sic ring­ing,
Ringing in my heart.

I can­not keep from sing­ing
Since that glad day,
When Je­sus took, in mer­cy,
My sins away;
He op­ened up a foun­tain
Whence streams of glad­ness start,
’Twas Je­sus set the mu­sic
Ringing in my heart.

Refrain

His love each day is grow­ing
More sweet to me,
Each day new grace and beau­ty
In Him I see;
For all this world can of­fer
From Him I would not part,
Since He has set the mu­sic
Ringing in my heart.
