Another new song by myself and Elizabeth. I wrote the music and she added the wonderful words. Visit her site for more original praise songs. - Elton, December 27, 1998



I would need a thousand songs to tell how God's love
Makes me new - yes, it's true!
And of how my whole life changed
When I acknowledged that His Son
Died for me - just for me.
That was how (That was how)
I was changed (I was changed)
When I gave my life to Him Who loves me so.
Through His Son (Through His Son)
Vic'try's won (Vic'try's won)
For God's love makes me new!

I am lost in wonder when I think how God's love
Takes the old - makes it new.
How He changed the bad things in
My life once I had met His Son
He who died - just for me.
Takes the old (All the old)
Makes it new (Oh, so new!)
And a new creation He has made of me.
By His Son (His dear Son)
Vic'try's won (Vic'try's won)
For God's love makes me new!

No more debts to pay once I acknowledged God's love
Cancels sin - by His Son.
Ev'ry stain was wash'd away
By Blood so freely shed for me
When He died - just for me.
And His love (His great love)
Takes me home (I am home)
To a wonderful relationship with Him
For His Son (His dear Son)
Vic'try's won (Vic'try's won)
With God's love I am new.
Yes, God's love makes me new!
