Constantly Abiding
Words and Music by Mrs. Will L. Murphy

John 15:5
"I am the vine, ye are the branches:  He that abideth in me, and I in him,
the same bringeth forth much fruit:  for without me ye can do nothing."

          There's a peace in my heart that the world never gave,
          A peace it cannot take away;
          Though the trials of life may surround like a cloud,
          I've a peace that has come here to stay!

            Chorus
            Constantly abiding, Jesus is mine;
            Constantly abiding, rapture divine;
            He never leaves me lonely, whispers, O so kind:
            "I will never leave thee," Jesus is mine.

          All the world seemed to sing of a Savior and King,
          When peace sweetly came to my heart;
          Troubles all fled away and my night turned to day,
          Blessed Jesus, how glorious Thou art!

            Chorus
            Constantly abiding, Jesus is mine;
            Constantly abiding, rapture divine;
            He never leaves me lonely, whispers, O so kind:
            "I will never leave thee," Jesus is mine.

          This treasure I have in a temple of clay,
          While here on His footstool I roam;
          But He's coming to take me some glorious day,
          Over there to my heavenly home!

            Chorus
            Constantly abiding, Jesus is mine;
            Constantly abiding, rapture divine;
            He never leaves me lonely, whispers, O so kind:
            "I will never leave thee," Jesus is mine.
