Wounds and Scars

A most difficult request.

A most beautiful request.

A request I am personalizing and making my own.

Heal the Wound
By Point of Grace

Don't let me forget, don't let me forget

I used to wish that I could rewrite history
I used to dream that each mistake could be erased
Then I could just pretend
I never knew the me back then

I used to pray that You would take this shame away
Hide all the evidence of who I've been
But it's the memory of
The place You brought me from
That keeps me on my knees
And even though I'm free

Heal the wound but leave the scar
A reminder of how merciful You are
I am broken, torn apart
Take the pieces of this heart
And heal the wound but leave the scar

I have not lived a life that boasts of anything
I don't take pride in what I bring
But I'll build an altar with
The rubble You've found me in
And every stone will sing
Of what You can redeem


Don't let me forget
Everything You've done for me
Don't let me forget
The beauty in the suffering


Don't let me forget, don't let me forget...
