Hear thou the song of my heart
When as a burden there lies in my breast
An anthem of praise no words can express
Hear thou the song of my heart

Hear thou the song of my heart
When tears hush my voice as I fervently seek
To offer thee praise my soul cannot speak
Hear thou the song of my heart

Hear thou my joy unspoken
Hear thou my psalm unsung
Accept thou my quiet devotion
Professed in no earthly tongue
Hear 'neath my stillness unbroken
A carol to my King
And when my heart can find no voice
Hear thou the songs I cannot sing

Hear thou the song of my heart
Though voiceless the anthem must often remain
Hear thou my love in the silent refrain
Hear thou the song of my heart
