God of the new beginnings
God of the second chance
Your grace an endless river
Your love an avalanche
There in my darkest moment
All hope burnt to the ground
That's where Your mercy found me
That's when Your love came down

You turned my mourning into dancing
You turned my sorrow into praise

(You give me) beauty for ashes beauty for ashes
You give me beauty for ashes beauty for ashes

Love met me in the ruins
Of all my past mistakes
Love walked me to the river
Love broke apart these chains
Love spoke a new tomorrow
Opened my eyes to see
Love washed away this sadness
Love came and rescued me

Oh (I) thank You God
I'm overwhelmed by Your incredible love
You make ev'rything new
Oh (I) thank You God
For all You've done and yet to do
Oh You make ev'rything new
