The second song on Love Song's groundbreaking first album, also called Love Song, is titled "Changes," and it's a testimony about having found in Jesus the source and empowerment of a lasting life-change.

(Shout out to friend and pioneering Jesus music disc jockey, Rob Whitehurst, for using this song as the theme music for his show!)

I try so hard each day to shed a little light
To keep each moment of my life both full and bright
Believing in the feeling that I know is right
And here's the reason why I feel so good tonight

I'm doing what I want to and it's part of me
Keeping close to Jesus, that's the way it's got to be
Knowing that this feeling will flow eternally
And what I am, is all I have to be

I'm goin' through changes
Changes in my mind
Holding on to good things that I find
I'm goin' through changes
Changes in my mind
And I'm leaving all my emptiness behind
Yes, I'm leaving all my emptiness behind
(Chuck Girard - Dennis Correl)

Truth is...if knowing Jesus hasn't changed me for the better, maybe I don't really know Jesus.


  1. I love this song and can hear the melody in my mind as I read the lyrics!
    I love how this coincides with Brad's sermon this past Sunday on spiritual maturity (

    I also found this song refreshing because often (in my experience at least), I'm taught to shove my feelings aside (or ignore them) since they can lie to be about reality. But in fact, when I cross-reference my feelings with the Truth of Scripture and God's Church, our feelings can reveal a lot of beauty about God and the changing of the Spirit's work within my life. Emotions (like what the lyrics are reflecting) are a gift from the Spirit and evidence of where my heart is and how I process things around me.

  2. I can't tell you how cool it is for me that you are actually familiar with this album and are contemplating it together with me. "Love the Lord and do what you want!"

  3. The feeling is mutual! 🤗 I get excited for these posts! Major props to my parents for introducing me to the album at a young age!
    Heck - I even have original piano scores for the two albums (Love Song and Final Touch)!
