The World is Changing, One man at a Time


I don’t know whether it’s ingrained in us

Perhaps it’s because of our environment

But there’s a desire in most of us for change

There’s a cry in our hearts to see a difference

A craving to turn the world upside down


It’s in my dreams, it consumes my daydreaming

I see it everywhere, the cry for something more

Some call it activism, they call for a revolution

But leaders alone can’t bring the change we want

We need more, we need a complete overhaul


Leaders can only do so much for us

First of all we need to get them right

But even the best of leaders won’t do

The problem is far much deeper

The system is completely broken


Education, activism and being woke

Growing new leaders, voting right

All these might help for the time being

But if we want true change we need more

We need a people changed from within


We will never taste the change we so crave

Not until every one of us is changed

Changed from deep within us, made anew

Changed to value others more than ourselves

Changed to lay down our lives for others


We need real lasting change and it’s happening

We need change from within and you can see it

Where you ask? Everywhere the Gospel lands

Everywhere hearts are won for Christ change is happening

For the Gospel is changing the world one man at a time


It’s slow and almost unrecognisable but it’s happening

For every man who receives the Gospel is made new

Made new in the likeness of the best of men

Born again in the likeness of the new Adam

The Gospel is changing us, One man at a time
