A new life in Him
A new life in Him

I’d been struggling for so long
For true freedom to come
From my guilt which had held me so strong
“Reach up and I will draw near.”

Through the darkness and through bad times
I’d felt that you’d disappeared,
Had enough of my sin and so left –
Never! – but that’s what I feared.

But now
I see the light of the Son
Oh, it’s almost blinding me
Yes, I believe!
I’ve been found by your Grace and your love

Let your Grace come down & wash away my tears
Let it save my soul and drown my fears
Let it form a new heart, for a brand new start:

A new life in You!

Where it was dark, now there is hope
Where there was guilt, now there is none
Here in my weakness I found your strength
All through the death of the Son

Yes, now
I see the light of the Son
Oh, thank you for finding me
Yes, I believe!
I’ve been touched by your Grace and your love

Yes, your Grace comes down to wash away my tears
Yes, it fills my soul and drowns my fears
Yes, it’s formed a new heart, for a brand new start:

A new life – yes!

Yes, your Grace comes down to wash away my sin
Yes, it gives me strength, new heart within
Yes, it gives a new life, a new life in the Son

A new life’s begun!

Yes, real life
Yes, yes,
I have new life in the Son
All through the death of the Son

Yes, I believe!
I’ve been freed by your Grace and your love

Yes, I believe!
I’ve been healed by your Grace and your love

Yes, Lord, a new life in You
Yes, Lord, a new life in You
