You lost your glory, you gave it away.
Traded your virtue for the lies that bring shame.
Feel so alone now, secrets keep you from me.
Trying to hide it all, but know that I see you,
because I was there when those thoughts began.
I was there, thoughts gave way to sin.
I am here, as guilty tears you cry.
I'm still here; please understand

I am the one who restores your soul.
I am the one who makes you whole again.
No matter what you've done,
how far you've run,
just turn around, cause I'm waiting to hold you.

Don't be mislead now, don't remain in that space.
Secrets, they hate the light, so come into my place.
It's a painful thing to confess
that you lost your pureness, but no, it's not hopeless.

Repeat Chorus

Realize that what you've done has distanced you from me.
Determine in your heart you'll do whatever to be free.
Turn from your past, and leave the old ways behind.
Walk with me so closely, never doubt that you are mine.
If they try to judge you and would turn you away,
know that I have saved you; there's no need to be ashamed.
You've turned from your past, and left your old ways behind.
You're walking with me, so you tell the world that you are mine.

Repeat Chorus

    General CommentThis song is almost magical. I can't believe how much it moves me, and makes me cry.
    The meaning of the song is pretty self explanatory, but to me it means that He is always going to be there, even if at times we wish He wouldn't. That is something you can't guarantee any earthly being will be.
