Not Forsaken {original song}

Your love, has met me where I am
You see, where Your chosen bride has been
You know, just how far I ran
Yet You come, and You choose me once again


You have not forsaken me
Your love has not rejected me

You are always here with me

Your grace, gave Your bride a thousandth chance
You breathe, and a flame begins to dance
Purify, my love in Your romance

Oh, You are steady
You have never left my side


You have not forsaken me
Your love has not rejected me

I'm coming sick with grief I thought I should have overcome months ago.

I come because I know now that no one else will do, no one else could save me.

I was waiting for a savior on a white horse,

& it's You.

It has always been You.

So here I am, here I've come, & this is what it's come to.

My stomach is turning as I reflect on the mess I've made, & the ways I've tried to clean it up.

I confess, & I leave my hands open. They're bloody & stained, full of lies.
