20 Days Of Worship Through Song | Day 4 - The Musings of Mum

When I created the list of songs I wanted to share with you this month I jotted down notes of what I wanted to discuss each day. As I prayed over today’s post the notes no longer made sense. At first I though about moving this song to a later date, and give myself some time to review what I wanted to say, however I decided to keep each song in the order the Lord inspired.

Today’s song is Second Chance by Rend Collective. Their songs have really been speaking to me lately so be prepared for a few more in days to come. I played this song at least 40 times today. Despite my decision to get rid of the notes, I attempted to break it down, to explain how the song has affected my walk, but I couldn’t. There’s just too much here.

A few years ago, a good friend expressed his deep disapproval for all worship, that didn’t directly derive from scripture. He believed that all worship should come directly from the bible, word for word. While I respected his opinion, I didn’t agree with it.

I believe worship should come from the heart and soul, it should be an act of love. I think this song is a great example of worship that was inspired by both love and scripture, even if it doesn’t quote scripture word for word.

As I hear this, I’m reminded of the lives Christ touched on His way to Calvary, like Simon of Cyrene, the thief at the cross and the Roman Centurion. All three of these men did not expect to be changed by the day’s events, yet each one of them got to see Christ and the cross face to face. Talk about in-your-face-evangelism.

Breaking from my usual format, I’ve left the complete lyrics below, so you can determine if and how it speaks to you:

Oh, your cross, it changes everything

There my world begins again with you

Oh, your cross, it’s where my hope restarts

A second chance is Heaven’s heart

My future hangs on this

You make preciousness from dust

Please don’t stop creating me

You blood offers the chance

To rewind to innocence

Reborn perfect as a child

Oh, your cross, it changes everything

There my world begins again with you

Oh, your cross, it’s where my hope restarts

A second chance is Heaven’s heart

When sin and ugliness

Collide with redemption’s kiss

Beauty awakens my romance

Always inside this mess

I have found forgiveness

Mercy infinite as you

Oh, your cross, it changes everything

There my world begins again with you

Oh, your cross, it’s where my hope restarts

A second chance is Heaven’s heart

Countless!

Countless second chances we’ve been given at the cross

Countless second chances we’ve been given at the cross

Fragments of brokenness

Salvaged by the art of grace

You craft life from our mistakes

Like skies of my regrets

Outshined by his kindness

New life dawns over my soul

Oh, your cross, it changes everything

There my world begins again with you

Oh, your cross, it’s where my hope restarts

A second chance is Heaven’s heart

Countless second chances we’ve been given at the cross

Sing countless!

Countless second chances we’ve been given at the cross

Countless second chances we’ve been given at the cross
