I Am New

I am NewNow I won’t deny the worst you could say about me
But I’m not defined by mistakes that I’ve made.
Because God says of me, I am not who I was I’m being remade
I am new… I am chosen and holy and I’m dearly loved I am new.

Who I thought I was and who I thought I had to be
I had to give them both up, cause neither were willing to ever believe I am not who I was… I’m being remade I am new I am chosen and holy and I’m dearly loved I am new I am new.

Too long have I lived in the shadow of shame, believing that there was no way I could change. 
But the one who is making everything new doesn’t see me the way that I do.
He doesn’t see me the way that I do.

I am not who I was I’m being remade I am new.
I am chosen and holy and I’m dearly loved I am new I am new.
I am not who I was, I’m being remade I am new.
Dead to the old man, I’m coming alive I am new I am new.

Forgiven, beloved… Hidden in Christ Made in the image of the Giver of Life.
Righteous and holy, reborn and remade.
Accepted and worthy. This is our new name
This is who we are now…
