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

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.

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

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

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

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
