Jesus Abides

By Larry Holder, Elton Smith and Steve Israel

CCLI Number: 3641994

This song started with a poem Larry wrote back in 1995. He sent it to me and Steve. I wrote the music and created the midi file (don't get dizzy on the merry-go-round!). All three of us worked on refining the lyrics. Many thanks to Backgrounds by Janette - Our God Reigns for the background image. This is based on a painting by Greg Olson entitled "The Light of the World". - Elton February 10, 2002.

(Introduction)

(Verse 1)
High in the heavens
Yet here in my heart
Jesus abides!
Though I may wander,
He'll never depart
Jesus abides!
How can it be God is living in me,
Ever revealing His great mystery?
High in the heavens
Yet here in my heart
Jesus abides!

(Chorus 1)
He abides in me,
Jesus is here in my heart.
He abides in me,
I know He'll never depart.
How can it be God is living in me,
Ever revealing His great mystery?
For high in the heavens
Yet here in my heart
Jesus abides!

(Verse 2)
There with the Father
Yet deep in my soul
Jesus abides!
And to His Spirit
I've yielded control,
Jesus abides!
Through us revealing His mercy and love,
Now we sing praise to our Father above.
High in the heavens
Yet here in my heart
Jesus abides!

(Chorus 2)
He abides in me,
Jesus is here in my heart.
He abides in me,
I know He'll never depart.
Through us revealing His mercy and love,
Now we sing praise to our Father above,
For high in the heavens
Yet here in my heart
Jesus abides!

(Verse 3)
Till I see heaven
He's here in my heart
Jesus abides!
Then I'll know fully,
Not only in part.
Jesus abides!
Until that day, I am so very sure
His grace and mercy shall ever endure.
High in the heavens
Yet here in my heart
Jesus abides!

(Chorus 3)
He abides in me,
Jesus is here in my heart.
He abides in me,
I know He'll never depart.
Until that day, I am so very sure
His grace and mercy shall ever endure,
For high in the heavens
Yet here in my heart
Jesus abides!

(Ending)
For high in the heavens
Yet here in my heart
Jesus abides!

This song deserves way more votes than this. I immediately noticed its power in melody, chords and lyric and promptly downloaded the score. Such great lines! I can really let go singing on this song while I'm playing the piano. I then sent the link to my potential choir members a few days before my trial Sunday and with only a 30 minute rehearsal the performance was fantastic. Now I am their regular director! Keep up the great writing guys and thank you! You are truly an inspiration. God Bless!

Hey this is Yvonne, and I wanted to say that I think that your music is great and that I am praying for you and I go to North Side Baptist Church. Also I am saved. I got saved when I was about 15 or 14.

What an amazing song. The background is wonderful. Even without sound today I can tell this is from a heart of worship.
