Everyone in life is given a second chance
Some people think its fate, chance but I call it God
Who tears down my walls, redeems me you are forgiven as I travel this sod
He restores my soul and helps me make a stand.
Second chances came as a child
From a hospital bed and being a sick little boy
Crying out to God as their was no time too be coy
My life in the palm of His hands so meek and mild.
This is no ordinary new thing this is life you see
A chance at a childhood and grow up is very special feeling
After prayers and waking up from surgery I was reeling
From the joy of breathing and saying thank you was my decree.
All who have suffered from loss want a second chance
Young or old who want too get life right
Too open their heart and be loving and not fight
Sharing grace, forgiveness and joy are in their plans.
Coming back to my roots and who I am
God’s not done working with me
Bring me back to a give and loving heart for all too see
Showing me my purpose as a man.
Second chances for all of us come in many ways and forms
Taking advantage of the time we have with friends and family
Should give us joy as we share our purpose in life in the busyness of day or on our knees
When life is good or when their is another storm.
Believing their are no second chances for me
Who picked me up with His mighty right hand in weak points of life
Restore my soul and take away my strife
These are my wishes for all of you too be free.
