11. The Redeemer (Radio Version)

Best of Sanctus Real
by Sanctus Real



 

Sometimes I just want to start over
‘Cause everything looks like a wreck
And I need the courage to carry on
‘Cause I can’t see what’s ahead
And there are places I’ve wished I could be
Battles I’ve wanted to win
Dreams that have slipped through my hands
I may never get back again

But I’m still a dreamer, a believer
Oh, I’ve lost my faith in so many things
But I still believe in You
‘Cause 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 I’d rather speak honestly
And wear a tattered heart on my sleeve
‘Cause in the middle of my broken dreams
Redemption is here

And I’m still a dreamer, a believer
Oh, I’ve lost my faith in so many things
But I still believe in You
‘Cause You are the answer, the redeemer
Oh, I’ve given up on too many things
But I’m not giving up on You
‘Cause You can make anything new

I don’t have every answer in life
But I’m trusting You one day at a time
‘Cause 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, I’m 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)

‘Cause You can make anything new
Yeah, You’re making everything new

Behind the Song:
"It can be a struggle to remain hopeful when there is so much injustice in this world…to find the courage to dig for goodness amidst the wreckage we’ve 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. It’s better to dig with hope and have our hearts be tattered than to lose hope completely. This doesn’t 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 God’s tenderness and individual care." - Sanctus Real
