Intro: I've been changed
Healed
Freed
Delivered

I've found joy
Peace
Grace
And favor

Verse 1: I've been changed (I've been changed)
In the presence of the Lord, Ive been
(Healed)
Freed (freed)
Delivered (delivered)

In your presence Lord
(i've found joy, peace)
Grace (grace)
And favor (favor

And right now (right now is the moment)
Today (today is the day)
I've been changed (I've been changed)
I've been changed (I've been changed)
And I have waited (I have waited for this moment to come)
(And I won't let it pass me by...)

Chorus: So we say
I won't go back, can't go back to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me
Say I won't
I won't go back, I can't go back to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me

Verse 2: (All my shame, guilt, sins)
They've been forgiven (forgiven)
No more chains
Fear
My past (my past) is over (is over)
Say right now (right now is the moment)
Today (today is the day)
I've been changed (I've been changed)
Come on someone declare that, I've been changed (I've been changed)
and I have waited (I have waited for this moment)
This moment right here I have waited all my life (to come)
(And I won't let it pass me by...)

Chorus: So we say
I won't go back, can't go back to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me
Would you lift up your voices as loud as you can and say?
I won't go back, I can't go back to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me
Come on, somebody, lift your voice and declare it and say
I won't go back, I can't go back to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me
Somebody say... I won't go back, say I won't go back, I can't go back to the
way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me.
