‘Why Do I Sing About Jesus?’


HYMN DAY! “Why Do I Sing About Jesus?” by Albert A. Ketchum

Deep in my heart there’s a gladness;
Jesus has saved me from sin!
Praise to His name, what a Savior!
Cleansing without and within!


Why do I sing about Jesus?
Why is He precious to me?
He is my Lord and my Savior,
Dying, he set me free!

Only a glimpse of His goodness;
That was sufficient for me.
Only one look at the Savior—
Then was my spirit set free.


He is the Fairest of fair ones;
He is the Lily, the Rose.
Rivers of mercy surround Him;
Grace, love and pity He shows.
