Lyrics

What do you see when you look in the mirror?
(A loser? A failure?)
Does every scar determine who you are?
Maybe don’t look, just turn away
If every day is like yesterday
Winds are gonna change

What do you hear when you’re all alone?
(In your head a dead end)
Stranded at sea on a stepping stone
There’s a cloud inside you, it’s welling up
Your eyes are holding back a flood
It’s safe to come undone

You’re not worthless, you’re precious
You’re not left out, you’re wanted
You’re not invisible with your shining soul
Love has spoken, you are chosen

You sat on the side and you tried to hide it
(In silence and quiet)
But deep in your heart, there’s a burning fire
Whoever told you that you’re not strong
Today’s the day you’re gonna prove them wrong
It’s in your victory song

You’re not worthless, you’re precious
You’re not left out, you’re wanted
You’re not invisible with your shining soul
Love has spoken, you are chosen

Your fear is courageous and your weakness is strong
Hold onto faith and you’ll more than overcome
This is your identity, your call to be, you’re royalty
You’re chosen, you are chosen
Your fear is courageous and your weakness is strong
Hold onto faith and you’ll more than overcome
This is who you’re made to be, come and see your destiny
You’re chosen, you are chosen

You’re not worthless, you’re precious
You’re not left out, you’re wanted
You’re not invisible with your shining soul
Love has spoken, you are chosen

About This Song

“Have you ever wondered at your heart’s core exactly who you are? I wrestle with it a lot. In fact, when we were sitting down to write this song those were the thoughts going through my head, and then we opened up the bible. First Peter 2:9 kind of lays it all out there…it says ‘you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.’

Whatever darkness you are walking through today, whatever the world is trying to define you as, know that God is the one that is the author and the perfecter of our faith. Jesus sees you today…whatever you’re walking through, he sees you…says ‘I love you’…and He chooses you. Believe it!”
