1. In the depth of my despair, I cried unto the Lord,
And He heard me in His holy place.
Then He put His arms around me, and told me that He loved me
And He put a smile upon my face.


Now I can smile, since He took away my burdens.
I can sing since He filled me with His praise.
And my friends can plainly see there's been a change in me
Since He put a smile upon my face.

2. Now if trouble has you down, and you only wear a frown
And then you found amazing grace.
He'll hear you when you're hurting, save you and you'll know for certain
He'll put a smile upon your face.

CHORUS: three times
