Some time ago, I met a man. He was a simple man, but very wise.By some strange situation I ended up sitting next to him in Church. And as I sat there he said to me, “since you are sitting in my seat, you must sing as I do”. I was young, and really didn’t sing, and let alone during the congregational singing. (that was for the adults)

Well i watched him as the songs were sung that night. And at one point I was amazed. His face lit up, his eyes seem to shine. There was a smile, and joy like I never really knew.  That inspiration has stayed with me my entire life. When I sing in Church some say, I sing so loud, yet I don’t feel I sing loud enough to match the passion with which he sung that night.

Brother Luis Montalvo showed me that our Love for God is expressed from our hearts through the little things we share. So it’s hard sometimes to not want to sing like I’m screaming from the top of a mountain, when this song is sung.

He gave this song new meaning, at least in my life. May it’s words bring you some joy today as you read them.

 

 

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.

Chorus:
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!

Chorus:
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!

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.

Chorus:
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!
