Ruins by Mandisa



I look around and all I see Burning buildings, barren trees Hopelessness is starting to wreak havoc But Son of Man, I know You see The deepest depths unknown to me You have planted seeds among the ashes


You rebuild You restore All that's broken From the ruins You redeem You return All that's stolen From Your children That's what You do That's what You do


So be still my anxious heart All that's gone is never lost Emmanuel is here and He is faithful So I won't let my praises stop I'll sing it from these rubbled rocks 'Cause I know You are good and You are able


You rebuild You restore All that's broken From the ruins You redeem You return All that's stolen From Your children That's what You do That's what You do


You mix beauty from ashes Yeah, that's what You do You turn sorrow to gladness Yeah, that's what You do I gave glory and honor For all that You do I will sing "Hallelujah" For all that You do


You mix beauty from ashes Yeah, that's what You do You turn sorrow to gladness Yeah, that's what You do I gave glory and honor For all that You do I will sing "Hallelujah" For all that You do For all that You do


You rebuild You restore All that's broken From the ruins You redeem You return All that's stolen From Your children


You rebuild You restore (yes, You do) All that's broken (all that's broken) From the ruins (from the ruins) You redeem (yes, You are) You return (yes, You do) All that's stolen (all that's stolen) From Your children


That's what You do That's what You do



this song is a beautiful reminder of where to find the "yes" amidst a season of no's.


say yes to him continually, in a constant state of worship and prayer, listening and obeying. Christ takes the demolition and uses it for good and redeems the ashes and rubble. how sovereign and powerful and kind is He!!
