But God…

Once we were outside looking in,
Once we were distant, longing to be close,
Once we were dirty, seeking to be clean,
Once we were full of hate, wanting to be loved,
Once we were confused, needing for clarity,
Once we were wandering, longing for home,
Once we were deceived, searching for truth,
Once we were foolish, yearning for wisdom,
Once we were slaves, aching for freedom
Once we were wounded, requiring healing,
Once we were dead.

But God…

…because of his kindness, he accepts us,
…because of his compassion, he restores us,
…because of his grace, he saves us,
…because of his wisdom, he rescues us,
…because of his mercy, he redeems us,
…because of his patience, he listens to us,
…because of his forgiveness, he changes us,
…because of his goodness, he heals us,
…because of his strengthen, he frees us,
…because of his faithfulness, he remembers,
…because of his great love, he made us alive.

But God, being rich in mercy,
because of His great love with which He loved us,
even when we were dead in our transgressions,
made us alive together with Christ, by grace you have been saved
Ephesians 2:4–5
