It is easy to feel unworthy of God’s boundless love, even as we struggle against Him. Today’s song by Matthew West reminds us of how our Father sees us: “Mended.”

You see your worst mistake

But I see the price I paid

And there’s nothing you could ever do

To lose what grace has won

So hold on it’s not the end

No, this is where love’s work begins

I’m making all things new

And I will make a miracle of you

Today, let us look inside ourselves and see the beauty of God’s creation—and take comfort that He sees His Son reflected in each of our faces.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

When you see broken beyond repair
I see healing beyond belief
When you see too far gone
I see one step away from home

How many times can one heart break?
It was never supposed to be this way
Look in the mirror but you find someone
You never thought you'd be
Oh, but I can still recognize
The one I love in your tear-stained eyes
I know you might not see it now
So lift your eyes to Me

When you see broken beyond repair
I see healing beyond belief
When you see too far gone
I see one step away from home
When you see nothing but damaged goods
I see something good in the making
I'm not finished yet
When you see wounded I see mended

You see your worst mistake
But I see the price I paid
And there's nothing you could ever do
To lose what grace has won
So hold on it's not the end
No, this is where love's work begins
I'm making all things new
And I will make a miracle of you

When you see broken beyond repair
I see healing beyond belief
When you see too far gone
I see one step away from home
When you see nothing but damaged goods
I see something good in the making
I'm not finished yet
When you see wounded I see mended

I see my child, my beloved
The new creation you're becoming
You see the scars from when you fell
But I see the stories they will tell
You see worthless, but I see priceless
You see pain, but I see a purpose
You see unworthy, undeserving
But I see you through eyes of mercy

When you see broken beyond repair
I see healing beyond belief
You're not too far gone
You're one step away from home
When you see nothing but damaged goods
I see something good in the making
I'm not finished yet
When you see wounded I see mended
I see mended
I see mended
I'm not finished yet
When you see wounded I see mended
