Change doesn't happen over night, but it does take place.

Some people see the light

And expect a change to happen over night.

But the real truth is that it doesn’t happen that fast,

Because we first have to deal with our dark, hidden past.

The light only exposes our god-awful sins,

And it shows us just how low down and dirty we’ve been.

It shows all the cheating and hurting we’ve done,

And dealing with our past just isn’t fun.

There are so many habits that need to be changed,

But God’s got a plan that has been prearranged.

So He’s sent us a light that shines through His words

And he’s given us ears so the truth can be heard.

With patience and love He works on us all

By slowly tearing down a sin-built wall.

For some of us it’s a week and for other’s a life,

But with God, there’s a peace that’s gonna end all strife.

So let us pray that we see true light

And realize that a change will take more than a night.
