Lead Me

I love this song by Sanctus Real.  I included the video of the song with lyrics below and then below that I have the story behind the song.  I love how transparent they were to share something that many couples face. It’s very powerful.

“Forgiven” by Sanctus Real

I love this song.  It’s one of the most played songs on Christian radio right now, but it has a great sound and an even better message.  Here is the official video…

I love how they use books stacked to show that sometimes a lot is already written about our past, but once the girl in the video realizes she is forgiven, she finds a book with blank pages.  A fresh start. What a great feeling.  Then the man is watching old videos of his past life, and then he puts in the last video and it is erased.  A clean slate.

Here are the LYRICS ( I bolded my favorite lines):

Well the past is playing with my head
And failure knocks me down again
I’m reminded of the wrong
That I have said and done
And that devil just wont let me forget

In this life
I know what I’ve been
But here in your arms
I know what I am

[chorus]
I’m forgiven
I’m forgiven
And I don’t have to carry
The weight of who I’ve been

Cause I’m forgiven

My mistakes are running through my mind
And I’ll relive my days, in the middle of the night
When I struggle with my pain, wrestle with my pride
Sometimes I feel alone, and I cry

In this life
I know what I’ve been
But here in your arms
I know what I am

[back to chorus]

When I don’t fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ ‘cause

[back to chorus]
