  • Yeah, isn't it amazing how a man can find himself alone
    Call into the darkness for an answer that he's never known
    Yeah, isn't it amazing how God can take a broken man
    Yeah, let him find a fortune, let him ruin it with his own two hands

    And he climbs on up the hill on the rock on which he stands
    He looks back at the crowd
    He looks down at his hands and he says
    I am a difference maker

    Oh, I am the difference maker
    Oh, I am the only one who speaks to him
    I am the friendliest of friends of God

    Yeah, isn't it amazing how a man can find himself alone
    Call into the darkness for an answer that he's never known
    Yeah, isn't it amazing how God can take a broken man
    Yeah, let him find a fortune, let him ruin it with his own two hands

    He walks on up the hill to the rock on which he stands
    He looks back at the crowd
    He looks down at his hands and he says
    I am a difference maker

    Oh, I am the difference maker
    Oh, I am the only one that speaks to him
    And I am the friendliest of friends of God

    I am on the fence about nearly everything I've seen
    And I have felt the fire be put out by too much gasoline
    And we're all strangers passing through a place and time afternoon
    Life is but a vision in a window that we're peeking through

    A helpless conversation with a man who says he cares a lot
    It's a passive confrontation about who might throw a punch or not
    We are all transgressors, we're all sinners, we're all astronauts
    So if you're beating death then raise your hand but shut up if you're not

    'Cause I am the difference maker
    Oh, I am the only one that speaks to him
    And I am the friendliest of friends of God

    I am the difference maker
    Oh, I am the only one that speaks to him
    And I am the friendliest of friends of God Writer/s: Nathaniel Rinehart, William Rinehart
