Today I want to take the opportunity to simply share a song with you. I’ve been haunted by its power and beauty ever since our church sang it in worship two weekends ago.

Changed – Aaron Niequist

I’ll post the words here, but I recommend clicking through to Aaron’s website and listening there. He is a worship leader at Willow Creek and has also served at Mars Hill in Grand Rapids. I love his music and his approach to worship and leadership.

in Jesus’ name i’ve been changed, i’ve been filled,

i’ve been found, i’ve been freed, i’ve been saved!


in Jesus’ blood i’ve been loved, i’ve been cleansed,

and redeemed, and released, rearranged


but how can i show You that i’m grateful?

You’ve been so generous to me.

how can i worship more than singing?

and live out Redemption’s melody.


i have been blessed – now i want to be a blessing

i have been loved – now i want to bring love

i’ve been invited – i want to share the invitation

i have been changed – to bring change,

to bring change


in Jesus’ name we are changed, we are called,

we are chosen, adopted, and named!


in Jesus’ blood we are loved, we are healed,

we’re forgiven and free of our shame!


we want to show You that we’re thankful

flooding Your world with hope and peace

help us  to worship more than singing

giving Redemption hands and feet


we have been blessed –

now we’re going to be a blessing

we have been loved –

now we’re going to bring love

we’ve been invited –

we’re going to share the invitation

we have been changed –

to bring change, to bring change


thank You for this new life,

thank You for the invitation!

God, we want to live it

loud enough to shake the nations –

in Your name!


we have been saved –

we’re going to shout about the Savior

we have been found –

we’re going to turn over every stone

we’ve been empowered –

to love the world to Heaven

we have been changed –

to bring change, to bring change
