My best friend and I sing this song it's one of the Mckamey's older ones it's really good.

Chorus
i just started living (I just started living)
I found me a brand new life
it changed my direction (changed my direction)
washed away all my strife
i'm a newborn believer (newborn believer)
it's holy and filling
the days are getting brighter
my load's getting lighter
i just started living

verse 1
If i had hope in this world below
i'd be covered with trouble there'd be no place to go.
but when i met  Jesus and started believing
I got filled with his love and cleansed from above
i just started living

chorus

verse 2
don't  you look at me funny you old prophet of doom
i'm not one bit discouraged and i'm feeling no gloom
cause i have God's spirit and it's totally filling
i gave up on pouting, got no time for doubting
i just started living

chorus

tag- Just started living

Hi Angelwings - You might like to know that Priscilla McGruder, who sang this song like none other, passed away last week.

I believe Carroll McGruder wrote this song.  Several sang it including the Cathedrals.

The Mckamey's never sung this song,  I know I'm very closely related to them.

The Cathedral Quartet absolutely sang this one. You should have seen Danny's face just light up when he launched into the chorus!
