Hi guest,

Was able to find the rest of the chorus...

The Trade

I traded my sins for salvation,
I traded my load for relief,
I obtained peace for my condemnation,
And the joy of the Lord for my grief.

I traded a life that was wasted,
For a temple to dwell in God made.
What I got was so much more,
than what he received.

I am sure I got the best of the trade.

Not sure if there are any more lyrics, but if there are, perhaps someone else can help?

God bless!
Steve

Here are the rest of the words to this chorus. I am desperately looking for the sheet music or hymnal with score. A little lady at our church wants it. Any helpful clues?

The Trade
1.
The Lord gave me beauty for ashes,
And for sorrow He gave to me joy;
I was sad and oppressed,
He exchanged it for rest,
And a peace that the world can't destroy.

Chorus

I traded my sins for salvation,
I traded my load for relief;
I got peace for my condemnation,
And the joy of my Lord for my grief.
I traded my life that was wasted,
A temple to dwell in God made;
I got so much more than I had before,
That I'm sure I got the best of the trade.

2.
I was poor and had nothing worth having,
Disappointment had saddened my life;
Now I'm rich as can be,
Since He traded with me,
Abundance of peace for my strife.

3.
I was restless, but God made me quiet,
When I fully surrendered my all,
He gave me comfort for my fear,
Gave me smiles for my tears,
As He lovingly heard when I called.

The chorus actually ends

. . . It's the best trade that I've ever made.

4.
Had He charged me the difference in trading,
Then His grace I could never afford;
But He cancelled my debt,
And I have no regret,
Tho it looks like I cheated my Lord.
