1 O what a change! From the darkness of night
Into the noontide of God's shining light
Out of my weakness to strength in His might,
O what a change! O what a change!

Chorus:
O what a change in my heart there has been!
O what a change! O what a change!
O what a change, since the Savior came in!
O what a change! O what a change!

2 O what a change! From my hunger for bread
Into the place where His children are fed,
Into the blessing of life from the dead,
O what a change! O what a change! [Chorus]

3 O what a change! from my burden of care
Into the rest He invites me to share,
Into His joy from the sorrow I bear,
O what a change! O what a change! [Chorus]
