Name

You woke up one day in a bad way,
With a dark heart in a small cave,
And decided to hide
For the long bitter night.
But one day someone loved you,
Let the light in, made the old new,
From the water and mud wrote you new name in blood,
Now, something about it just doesn't seem real,
Sometimes that's how it feels.
 
You are still a promise,
Heartbeat of God,
You may have forgotten,
But he has not,
You are not your ashes
You are a flame,
Do not ask the shadows
The light of the world knows,
Knows your name.
 
There was one day, you were certain
That he called you, cause you heard him,
And the clouds disappeared,
Everything crystal clear.
But then one day it was not so,
Other voices you didn't know
From the fray and the fringe, they were all weighing in.
Now you can't remember who has your heart.
Well here's a start.
 
Your a friend of God, daughter, son,
Blameless and forgiven one,
you're a slave no more, finally free,
Saints and heirs now redeemed,
your beautiful and broken heart,
Is safe and sound in his arms,
You were chosen you were his,
So remember this
 
You are still a promise,
You may have forgotten.
 
You are not your ashes, you are a flame,
Do not ask shadows the light of the world knows,
Knows your name
He knows your name
You are not your ashes, you are a flame
