During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

The Wonderful Change

All weights are gone, my heart is light

Author: D. S. Warner
Tune: [All weights are gone, my heart is light]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. All weights are gone, my heart is light,
My scarlet robes are changed to white;
O praise the Lord! I need no more
My load of sin and guilt deplore.

Chorus:
O I am saved in Jesus' blood,
My soul is happy now in God;
O glory! glory! can it be!
The Prince of Peace has come to me.

2. Where passions reigned and tempers foamed,
Now Jesus sits in love enthroned;
No dregs of carnal strife are found,
But hope, and love, and peace abound.

3. O wondrous grace! how great the change!
My soul now takes her joyful range,
'Mid scenes of beauty in the light,
Where all before was gloomy night.

4. The gilded glory of this world
Eclipsed, and into nothing hurled,
Before the super-excellence
Of Heaven's peace and righteousness.
