Second Chance by Rend Collective

When I created the list of songs I wanted to share with you this month I jotted down notes of what I wanted to discuss each day. As I prayed over today’s post the notes no longer made sense. At first I though about moving this song to a later date, and give myself some time to review what I wanted to say, however I decided to keep each song in the order the Lord inspired.

Today’s song is Second Chance by Rend Collective. Their songs have really been speaking to me lately so be prepared for a few more in days to come. I played this song at least 40 times today. Despite my decision to get rid of the notes, I attempted to break it down, to explain how the song has affected my walk, but I couldn’t. There’s just too much here.

A few years ago, a good friend expressed his deep disapproval for all worship, that didn’t directly derive from scripture. He believed that all worship should come directly from the bible, word for word. While I respected his opinion, I didn’t agree with it.

I believe worship should come from the heart and soul, it should be an act of love. I think this song is a great example of worship that was inspired by both love and scripture, even if it doesn’t quote scripture word for word.

As I hear this, I’m reminded of the lives Christ touched on His way to Calvary, like Simon of Cyrene, the thief at the cross and the Roman Centurion. All three of these men did not expect to be changed by the day’s events, yet each one of them got to see Christ and the cross face to face. Talk about in-your-face-evangelism.

Breaking from my usual format, I’ve left the complete lyrics below, so you can determine if and how it speaks to you:

Oh, your cross, it changes everything
There my world begins again with you
Oh, your cross, it’s where my hope restarts
A second chance is Heaven’s heart
My future hangs on this
You make preciousness from dust
Please don’t stop creating me
You blood offers the chance
To rewind to innocence
Reborn perfect as a child
Oh, your cross, it changes everything
There my world begins again with you
Oh, your cross, it’s where my hope restarts
A second chance is Heaven’s heart
When sin and ugliness
Collide with redemption’s kiss
Beauty awakens my romance
Always inside this mess
I have found forgiveness
Mercy infinite as you
Oh, your cross, it changes everything
There my world begins again with you
Oh, your cross, it’s where my hope restarts
A second chance is Heaven’s heart
Countless!
Countless second chances we’ve been given at the cross
Countless second chances we’ve been given at the cross
Fragments of brokenness
Salvaged by the art of grace
You craft life from our mistakes
Like skies of my regrets
Outshined by his kindness
New life dawns over my soul
Oh, your cross, it changes everything
There my world begins again with you
Oh, your cross, it’s where my hope restarts
A second chance is Heaven’s heart
Countless second chances we’ve been given at the cross
Sing countless!
Countless second chances we’ve been given at the cross
Countless second chances we’ve been given at the cross
