Rend Collective Experiment, “Second Chance”

The Rend Collective Experiment debuted this week on Billboard’s Christian Songs at #25, no small feat for a band’s first chart ink, and even better, for a band out of Ireland. But then again, the Rend Collective Experiment is no ordinary group. Birthed in 2004 as a group of mixed-up young adults looking to understand life, God and what it means to be part of a vibrant creative community. Eight years later, the band earns its first Top 25 hit! Not bad at all! Give Second Chance a listen and tell me if you agree.

Rend Collective Experiment

My future hangs on this
You make preciousness from dust
Please don’t stop creating me

Your blood offers the chance
To rewind to innocence
Reborn, perfect as a child

Oh Your cross, it changes everything
There my world begins again with You
Oh Your cross, it’s where my hope restarts
A second chance is Heaven’s heart

When sin and ugliness
Collide with redemption’s kiss
Beauty awakens by romance

Always inside this mess
I have found forgiveness
Mercy as infinite as You

Countless second chances
We’ve been given at the cross
Countless second chances
We’ve been given at the cross

Fragments of brokenness
Salvaged by the art of grace
You craft life from our mistakes

Black skies of my regrets
Outshone by this kindness
New life dawns over my soul
