"Undone" as written by and Peter C./millard Kipley....
No apologies for who I'm meant to be
The only thing that matters is I'm free
When I am overwhelmed
Holding pieces of my heart
When I feel my world start to fall apart

To the cross I run
Holding high my chains undone
Now I'm finally free
Free to be what I've become

Even in defeat
The face of tragedy
Still you have to say that I found victory
In brokenness comes beauty
Divine fragility
Reminding me of nail scarred hands
Reaching out for me

Repeat Chorus (2x)

Hallelujah, I'm undone

Repeat Chorus (2x)

To the cross I run, ooooo yeah
To be what I've become
And I'm undone

    General CommentThis song is so awesomely written. I love the part: "In brokenness comes beauty
    Divine fragility
    Reminding me of nail scarred hands
    Reaching out for me"
    Just beautiful and so touching.

    My InterpretationI think this song deals with personal failure and the freedom we find in Christ when we turn from our sin and turn to Him.

    The theme is centered around someone who is bound in chains which is a direct parallel to sin in our lives. This situation that the person is in, is bigger then the daily sin in which we all suffer from. The author speaks of "brokenness", "defeat", "tragedy". This song is about a big moral and personal failure in the person's life and only when he/she runs to the cross, will their chains be "undone".

    I am one who is coming out of a big, moral failure in my life and this song takes on particular meaning. The daily choices I made to turn from Christ and embrace this particular thing became "chains" in my life. As a result of my sin and my refusal to repent and turn from it, I experienced true "brokenness", "defeat", and "tragedy" in my life.

    But as the author so perfectly describes it, if we run to the Cross, we experience true freedom and it is beautiful and divine. The Victory part is what I am struggling with personally...I have yet to truly accept God's forgiveness for what I did and I realize I am short changing what God wants to do.

    Still work to be done but what a beautiful song that speaks of Gods mercy and forgiveness when we make colossal mistakes in our personal lives.
