What A Difference You've Made

Songwriter: Archie Jordan
Performer: Ronnie Milsap, Amy Grant
Category: Country, 70s

This ballad came out in 1977, released by two different singers that year. Amy Grant included it in her debut self-titled album in the early days of contemporary Christian music. And Ronnie Milsap put it on his album It Was Almost Like a Song - which became the more well-known (and higher-charting) version. He also re-recorded it on his 2009 country gospel album Then Sings My Soul.

Funny thing - I didn't know either of these versions until I looked them up for this site. My exposure to this song came from my pre-teen days listening to B.J. Thomas, whose version I've included in the iTunes playlist below.

Sheet music (piano/vocal, can be piano solo)


What a difference you've made in my life,
What a difference you've made in my life
You're my sunshine day and night.
Oh, what a difference you've made
In my life.

What a change you have made in my heart,
What a change you have made in my heart,
You've replaced all the broken parts.
Oh, what a change you have made...

In my heart.

Love to me was just a word in a song
That had been way over-used.
But now I've joined in the singing
Cause you've showed me love's true meanin'
That's why I want to spread the news.
