O what a wonderful, wonderful day – day I will never forget; After I’d wandered in darkness away, Jesus my Saviour 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.
Heaven came down and glory filled my soul, When at the cross the Saviour made me whole; My sins were washed away – And my night was turned to day – Heaven came down and glory filled my soul!
Born of the Spirit with life from above into God’s fam’ly divine, Justified fully thru 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!
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 it’s because of that wonderful day when at the cross I believed; Riches eternal and blessings supernal from His precious hand I received.
My sins were washed away- And my night was turned to day – Heaven came down and glory filled my soul!
