[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, I've been
(Healed)
Freed (freed)
Delivered (delivered)

In your presence lord
(I've found joy
Peace)
Grace (grace)
And favor (and 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

    The scripture decrees that if any man be in christ he is a new creature. God has made me new and i won't go back to doing the things i use to do, saying the things i use to say, or going the places i use to go. Now with god in my life i am royalty. He makes me feel special everyday. Who would want to leave god's presence when god can make you feel that great?!?!?
