Song: Unredeemed by Selah

November 12, 2009 at 9:20 pm 2 comments

Someone from Gracepoint Berkeley shared with us a very moving song.  The Christian music group, Selah, sings “Unredeemed” in their latest album You Deliver Me and this song speaks of the faith in God we should have in our deepest times of need.

Selah’s lead singer, Todd Smith (and his wife), experienced a painful loss of their newborn daughter who only lived a mere 3 hours.  During such painful losses of life, how can we see through the eyes of faith?  How can God redeem such pain and sorrow?  How about all the shameful dark pasts, wasted years, and even things that seem impossible to restore — Can God redeem the unredeemed?

Listen to this song while reading the lyrics below for the answer:

Unredeemed

The cruelest words, the coldest heart
The deepest wounds, the endless dark
The lonely ache, the burning tears
The bitter nights, the wasted years

Life breaks and falls apart
But we know these are…

[Chorus]
Places where grace is soon to be so amazing
They may be unfulfilled, they may be unrestored
But when anything that’s shattered is laid before the Lord
Just watch and see it will not be
Unredeemed

For every choice that led to shame
And all the love that never came
For every vow that someone broke
And every life that gave up hope

We live in the shadow of the fall
But the cross says these are all …

[Chorus]

Places where grace is soon to be so amazing
They may be unfulfilled, they may be unrestored
But you never know the miracles the Father has in store
Just watch and see it will not be
Just watch and see it will not be…unredeemed.

Amen.  Lord, we want to watch and see how You will redeem even the most unredeemed…
