[Verse 1:]
The skies lay low where You are
On the earth You rest Your feet
Yet the hands that cradle the stars
Are the hands that bled for me
[Chorus 1:]
In a moment of glorious surrender
You were broken for all the world to see
Lifted out of the ashes
I am found in the aftermath
[Verse 2:]
Freedom found in Your scars
In Your grace my life redeemed
For You chose to take the sinner's crown
As You placed Your crown on me
[Chorus 2:]
In that moment of glorious surrender
Was the moment You broke the chains in me
Lifted out of the ashes
I am found in the aftermath
And in that moment You opened up the heavens
To the broken the beggar and the thief
Lifted out of the wreckage
I find hope in the aftermath
[Bridge:]
And I know that You're with me
Yes I know that You're with me here
And I know Your love will light the way
[Chorus 3:]
Now all I have I count it all as loss
But to know You and to carry the cross
Knowing I'm found
In the light of the aftermath

    I can now rest forever more spiritually and know that nothing can separate me from the love of god because when it was all set and done that (crucifixion) i was found in the aftermath, thank you jesus.

    Jesus paid an incredible price for me to to be called a daughter of god. I am forever grateful! Even though i'm a sinner, there's hope because of his unfailing love for us!

    God saw me when i was just helpless- worthy for suffering and death, but instead he suffered and died for me. The peace, joy and the life am having is in the aftermath. Thank you jesus.
