HEAVEN CAME DOWN

(G)O what a wonderful, (D)wonderful (G)day-
Day I will never for(D)get;
(Am)After I'd (C)wandered in (D7)darkness away,
(C)Jesus my (D)Savior I (G)met.
O what a tender com(D)passionate (G)friend-
He met the need of my (C)heart;
Shadows dispelling, with (G)joy I am telling,
He (D)made all the (C)darkness de(G)part!

Chorus:
(G)Heaven came down and (C)glory (D)filled my (G)soul ((C)filled my (G)soul)
When at the cross the (C)Savior (D)made me (G)whole ((C)made me (G)whole)
My (D)sins were washed a(C)way(Am)- and (D7)my (G)night was (D)turned to (C)day(Am)-
(G)Heaven came down and (C)glory (D)filled my (G)soul ((C)filled my (G)soul)

Born of a Spirit with life from above
Into God's family divine,
Justified fully thro' 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

Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul

F
O what a wonderful, wonderful day
                  C7
Day I will never forget

After I'd wandered in darkness away
                    F
Jesus, my Saviour I met

O what a tender compassionate friend
                      Bb
He met the need of my heart
                         F
Shadows dispelling, with joy I am telling
   C7                      F
He made all the darkness depart


Chorus:
F                    C7             F Bb F
Heaven came down and glory filled my soul
                      C7              F Bb F
When on the  cross my Saviour made me whole
 C7
My sins were washed away
       F                   Dm G7
And my night was turned to day
F                    C7              F
Heaven came down and glory filled my soul


Born of the spirit with life from above
In to 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

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
