When I opened my heart's door to Jesus,
He filled me with joy never known,
A joy that abideth forever,
'Tis centered in Jesus alone.
Deep down in my heart, the love of Jesus is singing;
Deep down in my heart, His peace and joy are springing;
Deep down in my heart, sweet hope its comfort is bringing;
Love, peace, joy, hope, are singing deep down in my heart.
He gave me sweet peace as my portion,
That turmoil or strife cannot move,
The gift of His infinite mercy,
His perfect, unchangeable love.
He gave me a hope never dying,
Of seeing His face some glad day,
And I on my way go rejoicing
With joy, peace, and hope as my stay.
