Mending what is Broken – v7

To regain the mantle
the name of the living God
redeeming what is lost
coming back to Him
to the Father, the Prodigals
our spirit, our purpose
renewing us in love
rising up together

Mending what is broken
the divide between us
tearing down the walls
the barriers between us
coming back to God, the Prodigals
gathering our people in
none to be seen as lost
all are children of God
