When did I get bound up with all these chains
Of who I’m not, who I was, and who I am
Through the layers, God, this certainty remains
You’re the only One who truly understands
And You hold me in Your hands

You’re reshaping me
Making me new
Into who You intended
To shine Your truth
And when You’re through
Everyone will see
Just what it really means
For me to be me

Made in Your image, I became a dim reflection
Of Your kindness, of Your love, of Your light
But I know that one day I’ll be remade into perfection
And this likeness of You will shine bright
Day by day You’re making things right

You’re reshaping me
Making me new
Into who You intended
To shine Your truth
And when You’re through
Everyone will see
Just what it really means
For me to be me

You see inside of my heart
To the longing of my soul
Just to be where You are
And to finally be whole
But for now, Lord, it’s enough to know

You’re reshaping me
Making me new
Into who You intended
To shine Your truth
And when You’re through
Everyone will see
Just what it really means
For me to be me
