Based on the book of Hosea

Words and music by Johnny Pawlett and Matt MacGregor

Verse 1:
We have been those
Who have not done right;
We have been those
Who’ve hidden from the light.
 
We have been those
Full of idolatry;
We have been those
who lived unfaithfully.

Forgive our sins, Lord; we return to you.
Refresh your people as the morning dew.

Chorus: 
He will heal our waywardness,
And His love he freely gives
And we will dwell with Him: the living God
In his caring shade we’ll rest,
In his caring shade we’ll rest.

Verse 2:
We have been those
Who reject the law;
We have been those
Not bowing down in awe.
 
We have been those
Who have wandered far;
We truly are
Dependent on your scars.

Forgive our sins, Lord; we return to you.
Refresh your people as the morning dew.
 
Chorus

Verse 3:
We have been those
With adulterous hearts ;
The filth of sin
Staining every part .
 
You bought us back, Lord, at the greatest cost.
You've brought us back, Lord, what once was lost.
 
Chorus
