Do You Know Who You Are?

I’ve long felt Tenth Avenue North writes/sings poetic, inspired lyrics and many of their songs resonate in my spirit. Here’s a new one that says “it” much better than I ever could. Enjoy and be blessed. Happy Friday!

You Are More

There’s a girl in the corner

With tear stains on her eyes

From the places she’s wandered

And the shame she can’t hide.

She says, “How did I get here?

I’m not who I once was.

And I’m crippled by the fear

That I’ve fallen too far to love.”

But don’t you know who you are,

What’s been done for you?

Yeah, don’t you know who you are?


You are more than the choices that you’ve made,

You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,

You are more than the problems you create,

You’ve been remade.

Well she tries to believe it

That she’s been given new life,

But she can’t shake the feeling

That it’s not true tonight.

She knows all the answers

And she’s rehearsed all the lines

And so she’ll try to do better

But then she’s too weak to try.

But don’t you know who you are?

(Chorus 2x)

‘Cause this is not about what you’ve done

But what’s been done for you.

This is not about where you’ve been,

But where your brokenness brings you to.

This is not about what you feel,

But what He felt to forgive you,

And what He felt to make you loved.

(Chorus 2x)
