I am looking for the song lyrics to "Its in my heart"
Posted:  17 Nov 2006 12:18
I think this is the song you require:


Though some may sing to pass the weary night along
Though some may sing to entertain a worldly throng
I sing because I worship God in song
It's in my heart, it's in my heart.

It's in my heart, this melody of love divine
It's in my heart, since I am His and He is mine
It's in my heart, how can I help but sing and shine
It's in my heart, it's in my heart.

You ask me why I know His blood can cleanse alone;
You ask my who I know He sits upon the throne
And why I know He chose me as His own
It's in my heart, it's in my heart.

You ask me how I find the time to read and pray
You ask me how I smile when things are far from gay
You ask me how I sing His praises come what may
It's in my heart, it's in my heart.

I may not know the skillful use of tongue or pen
To prove my Lord's return to unbelieving men
But this I know, He's coming back again,
It's in my heart, it's in my heart.

God bless

I first heard this song sung by a converted drunkard in Perth, Scotland in 1973. It has continued to bless me ever since.

I have no idea who wrote this song..The man that use to sing it at my church was Rev. Othello Swansey. Whenever he sang this song I told him he was the "Black 0 Frank Sinatra." Does anybody from Ward Memorial at 4820 S Prairie remember him singing this song????

Love this song

I grew up in Roberts Temple COGIC in Chicago.  Now that I am older, and really have an understanding more of what it means to walk with the Lord, the song has so much meaning for me.  I can see Bro Morrison now, standing up and singing so beautifully, "It's in my  heart, this melody of love- divine..."

Thank you very much for posting this great song.  I've been  looking for it for some time.  I sang this song as a final for voice lesson class I had in 1961.  Can't sing this song unless it is in your heart to love God. Bob Royer
