Isaiah 57:18

Restore me Oh Lord restore me
My sin it is ever before me
Comfort me in my distress
Help me know how to confess
Take my life and to your Son conform me

You have seen my ways but you will heal me.
You will open my eyes to the real me.
I have gone astray but you will lead me
I have starved myself but you will feed me

He heals, he leads, restores and intercedes
Oh we are saved, saved! saved!
We fall in trembling joy as our sin is destroyed
Oh we are saved, saved! saved!

I resist your grace but you will break me
I resist where repentance would take me
Where I am broken make me whole
Turn my heart and take control
You promised ne’re to leave me or forsake me

The grace of God triumphs when we resist 
By creating praise where it did not exist.
He brings shalom to the far and to the near
And the peaceful  fruit of lips to those who’d hear

He heals, he leads, restores and intercedes
Oh we are saved, saved! saved!
We fall in trembling joy as our sin is destroyed
Oh we are saved, saved! saved!
