Then Sings My Soul Saturday - The Redeemer


I really like this song by Sanctus Real. On many days, I feel exactly like the lyrics to this song.

Sometimes I just wanna start over
Cause everything looks like a wreck
And I need the courage to carry on
Cause I can't see what's ahead

And there are places I've wished I could be
Battles I've wanted to win
Dreams that have slipped through my hands
I may never get back again

But I'm still a dreamer
A believer
Oh, I lost my faith in so many things
But I still believe in You
Cause You can make anything new

Sometimes I just wish we could say
All the things that are easy to hear
Ignore the injustice we see
And explain every unanswered prayer

But I'd rather speak honestly
And wear a tattered heart on my sleeve
Cuz in the middle of my broken dreams
Redemption is here

And I'm still a dreamer
A believer
Oh, I lost my faith in so many things
But I still believe in You
Cause You are the answer
The Redeemer
Oh, I've given up on too many things
But I'm not giving up on You
Cause You can make anything new

I don't have every answer in life
But I'm trusting You one day at a time
Cause You can make a weak heart stay alive
Forever
And this is where heaven and earth collide
I lift my hands, I give my life
This is how my weary heart stays alive

Oh, I'm still a dreamer
Still a believer
And You are the answer
The Redeemer
Cause You can make anything new
Yeah, You can make anything new

Enjoy!
Have a blessed weekend.







Sweet Blessings,
Amy

This is the first time I've heard this song but I really liked it. The lyrics had special meaning to me. I am a dreamer. I've been disillusioned by so much but the one thing I cling to is the Lord. He is so real to me and I know I belong to Him.

Love the lyrics. My fav part of the song: "But I'm still a dreamer - A believer - Oh, I lost my faith in so many things - But I still believe in You - Cause You can make anything new" And He can!
