Lyrics to Heal the Wound

Lyrics to Heal The Wound Heal The Wound

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 that 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.

A reminder of how merciful, how merciful you are.
I am broken torn apart, take the pieces of this
heart, and heal the wound but leave the scar,
leave the scar.
