There’s Within My Heart a Melody song lyrics

There’s Within My Heart a Melody was written and composed by evangelist Luther B. Bridges — amazingly, he wrote this after the death of his wife and daughters in a fire; the Lord spoke to him through the scripture, , “The Lord is my portion saith my soul. They that dwell in the secret place of the most high shall abide in the shadow of the Almighty” and he was encouraged to continue in the Lord’s work.

1. There’s within my heart a melody
Jesus whispers sweet and low:
Fear not, I am with thee, peace, be still,
in all of life’s ebb and flow.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
sweetest name I know,
fills my every longing,
keeps me singing as I go.

2. All my life was wrecked by sin and strife,
discord filled my heart with pain;
Jesus swept across the broken strings,
stirred the slumbering chords again.

3. Though sometimes he leads through waters deep,
trials fall across the way,
though sometimes the path seems rough and steep,
see his footprints all the way.

4. Feasting on the riches of his grace,
resting neath his sheltering wing,
always looking on his smiling face,
that is why I shout and sing.

5. Soon he’s coming back to welcome me
far beyond the starry sky;
I shall wing my flight to worlds unknown;
I shall reign with him on high.

      Remembering this good old song I was curios about who wrote it, and when. Was it after-or-before the deathly fire?
