Lyrics

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh

I’ve been known to hide my face when
I’ve been found in such dark places
I’m afraid to say what I’ve been through
Can’t really hide a heart that’s breaking
Or the many years I’ve wasted
I’m ashamed to say that it’s all true

When I thought I’d been to the bottom
Thought I’d been to the very end
Took a cold, hard look in the mirror
Saw the face of my own sin
I was sure I had strayed too far
For You to heal my heart again
You said, “Child, lay down your sorrow
‘Cause I’m not finished yet”

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
I’m not finished yet
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh

Got the scars that come from mistakes and
Cried the tears that come from Your grace
But I fеlt Your hope rising up when I was changed

Oh, I thought I’d been to thе bottom
Thought I’d been to the very end
Took a cold, hard look in the mirror
Saw the face of my own sin
I was sure I had strayed too far
For You to heal my heart again
You said, “Child, lay down your sorrow
I’m not finished yet”

Your love, Your love, keeps no record of wrongs
Your love, Your love, is calling me home (is calling me home)
Back to where I belong
When I find myself at the bottom, I’ve got nothing left
You say, “Child, lay down your sorrow
I’m not finished yet” (I’m not finished yet)

When I thought I’d been to the bottom
Thought I’d been to the very end
Took a cold, hard look in the mirror
Saw the face of my own sin
I was sure I had strayed too far
For You to heal my heart again
You said, “Child, lay down your sorrow
‘Cause I’m not finished yet”

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
I’m not finished yet
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh
I’m not finished yet

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
I’m not finished yet
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh (I’m not finished yet)
Whoa-oh-oh-oh
I’m not finished yet

About This Song

“At a certain point in life, we all get a moment to take a cold, hard, unflinching look in the mirror and take stock of who we really are. On a good day, I know that I can see love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. The next day, if I’m honest, I might see the exact opposite. The truth is that the COVID pandemic gave us all a LOT of time to look in the mirror and see the things that we wish we knew how to change. I realized that the beginning of freedom and hope was the moment I finally admitted I didn’t have it all together and I still needed Jesus to complete the work in me.”
-Jason Roy (Lead Singer of Building 429)
