O happy day that fixed my choice

O happy day that fixed my choice
On Thee, my Savior and my God!
Well may this glowing heart rejoice,
And tell its raptures all abroad.
  Happy day, happy day,
When Jesus washed my sins away!
He taught me how to watch and pray,
And live rejoicing every day;
Happy day, happy day,
  When Jesus washed my sins away!
’Tis done—the great transaction’s done;
I am my Lord’s, and He is mine;
He drew me and I followed on,
Rejoiced to own the call divine.
Now rest, my long-divided heart,
Fixed on this blissful center, rest;
Here have I found a nobler part,
Here heav’nly pleasures fill my breast.
High heav’n that hears the solemn vow,
That vow renewed shall daily hear!
Till in life’s latest hour I bow,
And bless, in death, a bond so dear.

This song reaffirms my faith in Christ Jesus knowing that my sins has been paid for in full by His blood. I am reassured of God's grace to mankind.

I like this hymn because it reminds me of my baptismal God-father and how he made me know God at the early stages of my life when I was supposed to have been destroyed by the corruptions of this world.

I like this song. It reminds me of older hymns my Southern Baptist church, Grandview Baptist, sang sometimes. It reminds me of saints gone before and mentors like my friend, Herb, who sent this in his daily devotional/prayer to the "beloved". Praise Jesus...it IS all about Him! Thank You Lord.


Lekki Peninsula, Victoria Island , Lagos, Nigeria

I woke yesterday morning singing this hymn aloud from my mouth, and I remembered we usually sing this hymn on Good Friday services way back to commemorate the death of OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. It also reminds me of my dad when he leads this hymn in the church. GOD bless you and mummy for making your children know Christ at our early age. The hymn reminds and gives me relief that all my sins have been washed away and one day I will see Christ in His glory! AMEN!!!

I was brought up with the Hymns book. To sing it is joy unspeakable! But to have it ring all day long inside my being. Live rejoicing every day. It is heavenly. O Happy Day! H 347
