Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul                 

(1) O what a wonderful, wonderful day-         
Day I will never forget;                 
After I’d wandered in darkness away,                 
Jesus my Savior I met.                 
O what a tender, compassionate friend-                 
He met the need of my heart;                 
Shadows dispelling, With joy I am telling,                 
He made all the darkness depart!                 


CHORUS: Heaven came down                 
and glory filled my soul,                 
When at the cross                 
the Savior made me whole;                 
My sins were washed away                 
And my night was turned to day-                 
Heaven came down                 
and glory filled my soul!                 


(2) Born of the Spirit with life from above                 
Into God’s family divine,                 
Justified fully through Calvary’s love,                 
O what a standing is mine!                 
And the transaction so quickly was made                 
When as a sinner I came,                 
Took of the offer Of grace He did proffer-                 
He saved me, O praise His dear name!                 


(3) Now I’ve a hope that will surely endure                 
After the passing of time;                 
I have a future in heaven for sure.                 
There in those mansions sublime.                 
And its because of that wonderful day                 
What at the cross I believed;                 
Riches eternal And blessings supernal                 
From His precious hand I received.
