He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.@Psalm 40:3

Ernest O. Sellers (1869-1952)

Anna B. Russell, 1921. Judging from the similarities, this song was apparently inspired by There Is Never a Day So Dreary. British evangelist Gypsy Smith made it well known, using it many times in his meetings on both sides of the Atlantic. In his 1927 book Wonderful Jesus and Other Songs, it is called The Gypsy Smith Campaign Song.

Ernest O. Sellers (🔊 pdf nwc). Sellers wrote the music while teaching at the Baptist Bible Institute in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Gypsy Smith book

There is never a day so dreary,
There is never a night so long,
But the soul that is trusting in Jesus
Will somewhere find a song.

Refrain

Wonderful, wonderful Jesus,
In the heart He implanteth a song:
A song of deliverance, of courage, of strength,
In the heart He implanteth a song.

There is never a cross so heavy,
There is never a weight of woe,
But that Jesus will help to carry
Because He loveth so.

Refrain

There is never a care or burden,
There is never a grief or loss,
But that Jesus in love will lighten
When carried to the cross.

Refrain

There is never a guilty sinner,
There is never a wandering one,
But that God can in mercy pardon
Through Jesus Christ, His Son.
