Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

A joy divine now fills

Full Text

1 A joy divine now fills my heart
And glad I sing today,
For since the Saviour took my hand,
The clouds have rolled away.

The clouds have rolled away,
O yes, they’ve rolled away;
A light divine illumes my soul,
The clouds have rolled away.

2 Before I took him for my guide,
There seemed not one bright ray;
But since I heard his sweet “My child,”
The clouds have rolled away. [Refrain]

3 My burdens sore, my sins so grace,
I at his feet did lay,
And ‘neath his calm, forgiving smile,
The clouds have rolled away. [Refrain]

4 The blessed light of gospel truth
Illumes my path each day,
And with him ever at my side,
The clouds have rolled away. [Refrain]
