Now that we have hinted at and emphasized this change, we actually leap into the G Major chord. The opening chord is an open G Major with and added D from the second string. This provides very minor modification to the E Min7 chord, but removes the root entirely, taking away its identity. This also takes away the "gloominess" of the E min7 and gives a bright sound. The C add9 maintains its identity, however, followed by the addition of an F Maj6(9)(no 5). This is more of a transitional chord running to the D sus4/D Maj/D Min (add 9) modulation.

This chord change musically represents the change in our lives that occurs through our faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior. The gloomy minor chord, representing the vileness of the nails, resolves into the bright and joyful major chord, representing the joy we receive because of the lifted weight of our sin that Christ's nails bore for us.
