01. Forgiven

Best of Sanctus Real
by Sanctus Real



 

Well, the past is playing with my head
And failure knocks me down again
Iím reminded of the wrongs that I have said and done
And that devil just wonít let me forget

In this life, I know what Iíve been
But here in Your arms, I know what I am
Iím forgiven, Iím forgiven
And I donít have to carry the weight of who Iíve been
ĎCause Iím forgiven

My mistakes are running through my mind
And I relive my days in the middle of the night
And I struggle with my pain, wrestle with my pride
Sometimes I feel alone, and I cry

When I donít fit in
And I donít feel like I belong anywhere
When I donít measure up to much in this life
Oh, Iím a treasure in the arms of Christ

Behind the Song:
ďForgivenĒ came from an instance when we were talking honestly as a band about feeling the wear and tear of our insecurities. At the end of the conversation we realized that no matter what we are or what we've done; in this world, to other people, or even to ourselves, what we truly are and will always be is "a treasure in the arms of Christ." It's so hard to see past our weakness and failures sometimes, or rather the things WE think are weakness and failures. They can corner us...trick us into believing we can't be used effectively by God. But God's strength is perfected in our weakness (2nd Corinthians 12:9)...It's when he can use us most! The message we hope to convey in this song is that we'll always have weakness. We'll always make honest mistakes. It's part of being human. God's great promise though is that we can always run into his arms. We'll always be forgiven. - Sanctus Real
