05. The Redeemer

Pieces Of A Real Heart
by Sanctus Real



 

Sometimes I just want to start over, Ďcause everything looks like a wreck / And I need the courage to carry on, Ďcause I canít see whatís ahead / And there are places Iíve wished I could be, battles Iíve wanted to win / Dreams that have slipped through my hands / I may never get back again // But Iím still a dreamer, a believer / Oh, Iíve lost my faith in so many things, but I still believe in You / ĎCause 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 Iíd rather speak honestly and wear a tattered heart on my sleeve / ĎCause in the middle of my broken dreams, redemption is here // And Iím still a dreamer, a believer / Oh, Iíve lost my faith in so many things, but I still believe in You / ĎCause You are the answer, the redeemer / Oh, Iíve given up on too many things, but Iím not giving up on You / ĎCause You can make anything new // I donít have every answer in life / But Iím trusting You one day at a time / ĎCause You can make a weak heart stay alive forever / This is where Heaven and Earth collide / I lift my hands and give my life / This is how my weary heart stays alive // Oh, Iím still a dreamer (This is where heaven and earth collide) / (I lift my hands and give my life) / Still a believer (This is how my weary heart stays alive) / Oh, You are the answer (Oh, this is where Heaven and Earth collide) / (I lift my voice and give my life) / The redeemer (This is how my weary heart stays alive, oh) // ĎCause You can make anything new / Yeah, You can make anything new

Behind the Song:
"It can be a struggle to remain hopeful when there is so much injustice in this worldÖto find the courage to dig for goodness amidst the wreckage weíve created with the human condition. To soften the blow, we become guarded. We protect ourselves by building up walls of cynicism and hesitation. We seldom believe in dreams. We stop expecting to find anything good, anything new.

This song is encouragement for us to let down these defenses. Itís better to dig with hope and have our hearts be tattered than to lose hope completely. This doesnít make sense if our strategy is to protect ourselves, but experiencing redemption is one of the most encouraging and miraculous ways to discover the depth of Godís tenderness and individual care." - Sanctus Real
