Forgiven Lyrics - Sanctus Real

Review The Song (11)

Well the past is playing with my head
And failure knocks me down again
I’m reminded of the wrong
That I have said and done
And that devil just wont let me forget

In this life
I know what I’ve been
But here in your arms
I know what I am

I’m forgiven
I’m forgiven
And I don’t have to carry
The weight of who I’ve been
Cause I’m forgiven

My mistakes are running through my mind
And I’ll relive my days, in the middle of the night
When I struggle with my pain, wrestle with my pride
Sometimes I feel alone, and I cry

In this life
I know what I’ve been
But here in your arms
I know what I am

[back to chorus]

When I don't fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ ‘cause

[back to chorus]

This song relates so much to my past before Christ and after Christ. Sometimes I fail and I have my past being brought up but then I realized I have a loving god who is forgiving

I am Forgiven Indeed. | Reviewer: Bertrand Daniel | 3/8/12

I thank God for HIS HOLY SPIRIT to lead Sanctus Real to pass on this Powerful redemption song. I know in JESUS CHRIST everyone is Forgiven; GOD BLESS you guys. I am always edified while listening to this song and others.

This song came at the most important time in my life, every lyric is my story and im so relieved to kno that someone else is experiencing the same emotions and spiritual journey and me! My prayer is that God continue to use His people to help others like this. Finally I can smile again!

I think this is pulling me in... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/8/12

I know this song wasn't written for me..... I know this, but .... it was. My older sister has been trying to find someway to find a way to get me back on the path God would like for me to walk. I have felt so stuck in my own world. We were riding in her car... and she played it.... and said, "Listen to this, it makes me think of you."

The song totally spoke to me... I began to cry. Looking out the passenger window at the every so quickly passing cars and such- hiding my tears. How I've always felt this way.... this song is me.

GREAT song, but a word of caution | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/15/11

I didn't know much about Sanctus Real when I first heard them perform this song, and was immediately impressed with their communication of Gospel truth. What a blessing!

However, it's all too possible to feel "like I don't fit in" and "I don't measure up to much" in the Church, as well as the world; and it's all too tempting to take this Gospel truth and isolate one's self with it. The sometimes-harder truth is that everyone else in the Body is also a "treasure in the arms of Christ," and we're called to engage and upbuild the Body. Let's not forget to sing "WE're forgiven...!"

no idea why but typing anyways | Reviewer: God's child | 7/17/11

this song stikes me right at my core... everytime (especialy that first time) i end up crying because it's immagry is amazingly beautiful... not to mention this song always seems to popp up when i least expect it but allso when i most n.eed it.

Changed my life! | Reviewer: Bee | 12/17/10

Wow, that's a big statement for a song...but it did. Being saved and feeling saved are two different creatures. Long stories short....hearing these lyrics finally said what I had felt for years, which was basically - If I'm saved, why do I find it so hard to believe that God could actually forgive and love me ... especially when I find it so hard to forgive myself...but hearing these precious words changed it all - it put all the Bible verses and all the preaching and all the things I knew into a reality 4 me; and for the first time in all my years as a Christian I really got it. I had carried the weight of the world on my shoulders since i was a young girl, suffered depression on and off throughout my mid/late teens and increasing bouts of despair as an adult. But God does love me. Yes, I am sinner and that's why I need his forgiveness. So if he can forgive me then surely I can learn to forgive myself. This basic fact has changed everything, the depression is becoming less frequent and I have stopped trying to prove to others that I am worthy, kind, generous, basically good enough and started to do what I BELEIVE I should do, not what others THINK i should! I'm not perfect, I NEVER will be, but I have accepted that and for the first time I can ever remember, I am content and I am happy....and I know that I'm forgiven. :-)

exactly what I needed | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/20/10

This song hits in just the right spot...'my mistakes are running through my mind, I relive my days in the middle of the night' that's the story of my life. But praise God! I don't have to carry the weight of who I've been, cause I'm forgiven!!

My 2 cents | Reviewer: Joshua King | 5/17/10

When I heard this for the first time, I thought I had heard it it was a cover or something. "Forgiven" is as powerful as hyms have been in the past. It's just one of those songs that is so necessary in this time, when everyone has hurts and feelings of rejection. It just makes everything so real.

song "Forgiven" | Reviewer: Robin | 5/6/10

The 1st time I heard this was like someone knew what was running through my head and put the words to music. My spirit soars every time I hear it!!! It is awesome, and blessed and thoroughly a blessing to those who hear!
