1 There’s joy within my heart today,
A Saviour I have found,
He cleansed my soul from stain of sin,
And turned my life around.

Refrain:
He turned my life around,
To heaven’s higher ground,
From sin and shame, O bless His name!
He turned my life around.

2 He rolled the heavy load away,
And gave me peace and rest,
I’ll follow Him where’er He leads,
This dearest Friend and best. [Refrain]

3 His precious blood redeemed my soul,
His love doth me surround,
I’ll sing His praise, my Lord divine,
He turned my life around. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
