E.M. Roth

I HAVE a song that Jesus gave me,

It was sent from heaven above;

There never was a sweeter melody,

‘Tis the melody of love.

In my heart there rings a melody,

There rings a melody with heaven’s harmony;

In my heart there rings a melody;

There rings a melody of love.


I love the Christ who died on Calvary,

For He washed my sing away;

He put within my heart a melody;

And I know its there to stay.


‘Twill be my endless theme in glory,

With the angels I will sing;

‘Twill be a song with glorious harmony,

When the courts of heaven ring.
