There’s been a

Since CI’ve been born a-Ggain.
There’s been a Ggreat (great!) change,
Since AI’ve been born a-D7gain.
There’s been a Ggreat (great!) change,
Since CI’ve been born a-Ggain.
There’s been a Emgreat change,
Since I’ve been Dborn a-Ggain!

The places I used to go…

    Thank you for this wonderful website. I was looking for some christian songs for my son to learn on his guitar. I am looking forward to the family nights we will have together my son leading us in praise to the Lord.

    God’s blessings,

    My Sunday School lesson is about Nicodemus, and being born again. Then my mind went way
    back to this little kids song. I was not sure I could get it right. So when no body answered at my daughters, I tried the web site. Thank You Jesus! May God richly bless this web site.

    Who wrote the music and the lyrics? Is there a way to listen to the verse of the song? I would like to use it for a Sunday school class. Anything about copyright that I should know before doing so?

    Thank you for the service you provide for ministry. I first learned the lyrics years ago from my nephew who is also in ministry. It is a great song that children have related to throughout the years. He added a variation where he divides the children into two or more sections then points to that section to sing a word, phrase, etc. while the other sections are to remain silent. It adds a nice variety that the children enjoy and actively participate in. This makes a good song to include in lessons on repentance. Again thank you for your ministry.

    For the person who asked: this song was written by Reverend Gary Davis and the lyrics shown here are not how he wrote it, his grammar was more that of a street preacher. Reverend wrote a great many gospel songs, he is worth investigating. If you want to hear how he played this song, I’ll include a link in a separate comment. Blessings!
