J. & the Talents – The Chase

This is a song I wrote about a week ago, called The Chase. It’s about how we as humans so often try to run away and hide from God, and live life according to our own terms, yet realize that God never stops chasing after us, even in our brokenness and denial. He is the god who loves us enough to repair us, but ultimately the choice is up to us if we accept His repair or not. The lyrics are posted below, and I hope you like it.

Can this mercy unearth me, a puddle wash me clean

Can this world see my stains I’ve hidden underneath?

You are the God who sees all things, I hope you don’t see everything

I’m but a soul with reason to run, You chase me with your mercy

Chorus

I’m running away, but you won’t stop

I fall to my knees, Caught in your love, My God

I feel your grace pursue me, yet I hide from you

If I can’t face my own fears, then how can I face you

Why do you cahse a broken soul as it runs from loving you

Chorus

Chorus 2

You took my shame, you healed my pain

What did I do to deserve this love, Oh God

Outro

Lord, let your mercy unearth me, your grace wash me clean
