11. The Redeemer (Radio Version)

Best of Sanctus Real
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, Youíre making everything 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
