There’s a song of joy,
I sing it every day,
For my every sin
The Lord has washed away;
Trusting in His word,
I yield to His control,
Since the loving Jesus saved my soul.

Refrain

My heart keeps right
Since Jesus saved my soul;
My every thought
Is under His control;
With songs of joy
I’m pressing tow’rd the goal;
My heart keeps right,
Since Jesus saved my soul.

As I live for Him,
Each burden seems so light;
While He walks with me
My heart is keeping right;
In the narrow way
I’m pressing tow’rd the goal,
Since the loving Jesus saved my soul.

Refrain

All my doubts are past,
I am secure at last;
Tho’ my strength may fail,
My anchor holdeth fast;
Tho’ I once was lost,
His grace hath made me whole,
Since the loving Jesus saved my soul.

Refrain
