He Keeps Me Singing
Words and Music by Luther B. Bridgers

Psalm 40:3
"And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God:
many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD."

          There's within my heart a melody
          Jesus whispers sweet and low,
          Fear not, I am with thee, peace, be still,
          In all of life's ebb and flow.

            Chorus
            Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
            Sweetest Name I know,
            Fills my ev'ry longing,
            Keeps me singing as I go.

          All my life was wrecked by sin and strife,
          Discord filled my heart with pain,
          Jesus swept across the broken strings,
          Stirred the slumbering chords again.

            Chorus
            Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
            Sweetest Name I know,
            Fills my ev'ry longing,
            Keeps me singing as I go.

          Feasting on the riches of His grace,
          Resting 'neath His shelt'ring wing,
          Always looking on His smiling face,
          That is why I shout and sing.

            Chorus
            Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
            Sweetest Name I know,
            Fills my ev'ry longing,
            Keeps me singing as I go.

          Though sometimes He leads thro' waters deep,
          Trials fall across the way,
          Tho' sometimes the path seems rough and steep,
          See His footprints all the way.

            Chorus
            Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
            Sweetest Name I know,
            Fills my ev'ry longing,
            Keeps me singing as I go.

          Soon He's coming back to welcome me,
          Far beyond the starry sky;
          I shall wing my flight to worlds unknown,
          I shall reign with Him on high.

            Chorus
            Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
            Sweetest Name I know,
            Fills my ev'ry longing,
            Keeps me singing as I go.
