6074. Since Jesus Came into My Heart

1. What a wonderful change in my life has been wrought
Since Jesus came into my heart!
I have light in my soul for which long I had sought,
Since Jesus came into my heart!

Refrain
Since Jesus came into my heart,
Since Jesus came into my heart,
Floods of joy o’er my soul
Like the sea billows roll,
Since Jesus came into my heart.

2. I have ceased from my wandering and going astray,
Since Jesus came into my heart!
And my sins, which were many, are all washed away,
Since Jesus came into my heart! [Refrain]

3. I’m possessed of a hope that is steadfast and sure,
Since Jesus came into my heart!
And no dark clouds of doubt now my pathway obscure,
Since Jesus came into my heart! [Refrain]

4. There’s a light in the valley of death now for me,
Since Jesus came into my heart!
And the gates of the city beyond I can see,
Since Jesus came into my heart! [Refrain]

5. I shall go there to dwell in that city, I know,
Since Jesus came into my heart!
And I’m happy, so happy, as onward I go,
Since Jesus came into my heart! [Refrain]

Notes: McDaniel wrote these words after the death of his son. It was the instrument used by the Holy Spirit in the conversion of Policeman Fowler during the Billy Sunday Philadelphia [Pennsylvania] meeting. What the apostolic preaching of the great evangelist failed to do, this song of personal testimony did--brought about Fowler's conversion. More than a hundred policemen were led to Christ by the change wrought in the life of one man by this song. Sanville, p. 32
