Cuán glorioso es el cambio

Representative Text

1 Cuán glorioso es el cambio operado en mi ser,
viniendo a mi vida el Señor;
Hay en mi alma una paz que yo ansiaba tener,
la paz que me trajo su amor.

Él vino a mi corazón,
él vino a mi corazón.
Soy feliz con la vida que Cristo me dio;
él vino a mi corazón.

2 Ya no voy por la senda que el mal me trazó,
do sólo encontré confusión;
Mis pecados pasados Jesús los borró;
él vino a mi corazón. [Coro]

3 Ni una sombra de duda oscurece su amor,
amor que me trajo el perdón;
La esperanza que aliento la debo al Señor,
él vino a mi corazón. [Coro]

Rufus H. McDaniel was ordained in the Christian church in 1873. He found much joy in church music. He began writing hymns in the 1880's. He wrote, "I feel in my soul that God has something for me to do in brightening the experience of struggling souls. My chief desire is to be a blessing, if possible, to my fellow-men through these hymns and thereby glorify God in the name of his dear son 'whose I am and whom I serve.'"
