As I rest against this cold hard wall, oh will you pass me by?
Will you criticize me as I sit and cry?
I had fought so hard and thought that all my battles had been won
Only to find the war had just begun


Chorus:
Is He not strong enough?
Is He not pure enough?
To break me, pour me out and start again.
Is He not brave enough?
To take one chance on me
Please can I have one chance to start again


Will my weakness for a hour make me suffer for a lifetime?
Is there any way to be made whole again
If I be renewed and find forgiveness by the strength I've never had
Will my scars forever ruin all God's plans?


Chorus:
Is He not strong enough?
Is He not pure enough?
To break me, pour me out and start again?
Is He not brave enough?
To take one chance on me
Please can I have one chance to start again


He took my life into His hands
And turned it all around
In my most desperate circumstance, is there I'm finally found


That You are strong enough
That You are pure enough
To break me, pour me out and start again
That You are brave enough
To take one chance on me,
Oh thank You for my chance to start again

    This song..oh..brings me to tears first of all...then it gives me great joy in knowing that after all the failures and weaknesses that I display and still am displaying time after time after time, God in His faithful love and tender mercies..saids come let us reason together, He wants to help pick us up, clean us off and start again in our lives, and only He holds that power to take all the broken, shattered pieces to our lives and put us back together again..Yes He is strong enough, brave enough and pure enough...We can begin again in Him..Thank you Jesus for loving us!!

    aw...i so agree with beyondpretty..
    i dedicate this song to someone who helped me a lot of times.

    He took my life into His hands
    And turned it all around
    In my most desperate circumstance, is there I'm finally found...

    i am so in love with this person!..^_^
