How Heavy Was My Load Of Sin

How heavy was my load of sin,
My garments how defiled,
Until I let my Saviour in,
And now I am his child.

I am his child, I am his child,
Praise God, I am his child!
I stand bewildered at the love,
The love that makes me his own child.

His peace at once he gave to me,
He stilled the tempest wild,
From heavy burdens set me free,
Because I was his child. [Refrain]

Tho’ obstacles of mountain height
Along my way have piled,
The sky above is always bright,
For now I am his child. [Refrain]
