No life is past redeeming; though full of wounds and shame.
Failings and mistakes galore, need not define our names.
For there’s a Truth that washes us and frees us from our chains,
It has true lasting power, to reclaim, redeem, and save!
God loves to use the wounded soul, the broken, and the lame,
To prove His great redeeming power, in victory from the pain.
There is no sin; there is no shame, that keeps us from God’s mercy,
For He’s the Great Redeemer, who makes straight our life’s journey.
So if you think you’re too far gone, to be of any use,
That you’ve maxed out God’s patience and there’s no hope for you.
Know that you are not alone in being broken vessels,
The Bible’s full of broken saints that first, were sinful rebels.
O child know He loves us, He has a plan for good;
To take us right here, where we are, and teach us what is true.
That we are precious in His sight, a lovely, shinning vessel,
And He will use mistakes and pain; for our debts; He has settled.
