Whole Again

“…he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted…”
Luke 4:18 KJV
"Repent..."
About the Song

Over the past 200+ years, the use of the word “repent” has declined sharply. Nobody likes to feel that they’re wrong. Nobody wants to think that they need to do better. We don’t want to feel guilty, or sorry, or any of those other “negative” emotions associated with the word “repentance.”

And yet, that’s precisely what the Lord wants us to do: accept our guilt–feel truly sorry for the harm it may have done others and ourselves… abandon the behavior… fix what we can fix (however inadequate that may be)–and let Him take it from us. Because getting better should be–and is–a remarkably happy thing.

As I thought about the idea of repentance, I wanted a song that looked at it in a positive light. One that expressed the joy of coming to Him broken and sad, and feeling the the touch of His grace that makes us whole again.

As it happens, that joy is pretty much inexpressible… but I tried. This is the result.

Lyrics

I come before the throne of God
My kneeling soul is filled with wond’ring awe
As the Savior’s tender mercy
heals the wounds of all my sin
I praise the love
that makes me whole again

I come in hope; I come in faith
To feel the touch of His redeeming grace
As I offer him my broken heart
He heals the hurt within
And I praise the love
that makes me whole again

Alleluia! my healing spirit cries
As He reaches out his hand to bid me rise
Alleluia! praise the Healer of all men
Who makes me more than what I was
And sees beyond what I am

And when I fall He lifts me up
Restores my soul, removes my bitter cup
For He heals my every heartache,
and He carries all my pain
And I praise the love
that makes me whole again

    Beautiful lyrics and music. The cello is my favorite instrument when played well.

      I agree. A base guitar, perhaps.

    Nice cadence. The song would be beautiful accompanied by a guitar. Great message!
