Full Text

1 Preachers and teachers would make their appeal,
Fighting as soldiers on great battlefields;
When to their pleadings my poor heart did yield,
All I can say, there is something within.

Refrain:
Something within me that holdeth the reins,
Something within me that banishes pain;
Something within me i cannot explain,
All that I know there is something within.

2 Have you that something, that burning desire?
Have you that something, that never doth tire?
Oh, if you have it - that Heavenly Fire!
Then let the world know there is something within. [Refrain]

3 I met God one morn', my soul feeling bad,
Heart heavy laden with a bowed down head.
He lifted my burden, made me so glad,
All that I know there is something within. [Refrain]
