PostSubject: Second Chances   Thu Oct 20, 2011 8:15 pm

For too many years, I carried around a heavy heart of stone
For too many years, I turned my back and then found myself all alone
In the darkest of places, I was losing my soul, so I turned to you and I prayed
And in shone your light, as you opened your arms, and revealed your love and grace

You are the God of second chances,
The ultimate sacrifice, so that we may live
You lend an ear to receive all my burdens
Though I fall short, through love you forgive

And I am made whole once again, by mercy, divine

Redeemed in the blood of the Lamb, even one so unworthy as me
I had walked this worldly path blinded, but now in his light I can see
Filled with his love, my joyous new heart, I inhale sweet breaths of life
I lift up my arms and surrender in praise, freed from bitterness and strife

You are the God of second chances,
The ultimate sacrifice, so that we may live
You lend an ear to receive all my burdens
Though I fall short, through love you forgive

Your words are moving to the soul. Love it. I can feel the passion you put into it. I especially love the refrain too. I bet this would go great with a slow melody.

I once sang with a group called second chance, I even wrote a few lyrics to a song by the same name, but it is His grace that gave me my second chance. I feel that you have captured the essence of mercy and grace with your words, here. Great job! It really spoke to me.
