Christian Camp Songs & Chorus Hymns #26

I spent many years in my late teens and early twenties working at Christian Camps.  I even met my husband at a Christian camp.  These wonderful memories of great experiences make Christian camp songs very special to me.

On top of featuring an old hymn each month in what I call "Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing" - I will also be featuring a chorus hymn every month - ENJOY!
Today's featured song is "Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul" - This fantastic song was actually written at a Christian Camp in Pennsylvania!  There was a time of sharing testimonies and an elderly man described the day of his salvation as if "heaven came down and glory filled his soul".  That's how John W. Peterson wrote this song! 

"....suddenly, a light from heaven flashed around him."
Acts 9:3

I have included 2 YouTube videos of this wonderful song (see below the lyrics) -  ENJOY!

Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul
Written & Composed by John W. Peterson

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!
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 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, 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!.
