In My Heart There Rings a Melody Lyrics

Author: Elton Roth

Verse 1
I have a song that Jesus gave me
It was sent from heav’n above
There never was a sweeter melody
‘Tis a melody of love

Chorus:
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

Verse 2
I love the Christ who died on Calv’ry
For He washed my sins away
He put within my heart a melody
And I know it’s there to stay Chorus

Verse 3
‘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 Chorus

In My Heart There Rings a Melody Hymn History

The words and tune of this hymn are from the pen of Elton M Roth (1891 – 1951). He was born in Berne, Indiana and passed away in Glendale, California.

Roth was one of the most well-known musicians of his day and contributed over a hundred hymns to the church.

According to Mr. Roth, this hymn came suddenly to him while assisting with evangelism in Texas in 1923. He recalled, “That evening I introduced the song by having more than two hundred boys and girls sing it at the open-air meeting, after which the audience joined in the singing. I was thrilled as it seemed my whole being was transformed into a song.”
