Restore lyrics goes, “Restore us! Darkness turns to light. You are light. You draw us closer to Your side”. It is the anthem for the year 2015: the Year of His Restoration.

Restore Lyrics

The theme and anthem were inspired by these two verses in Joel.

“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you. You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, who has dealt wondrously with you; and My people shall never be put to shame.”

Joel 2:25-26

I believe most of us feel that we lost something in our life journey. Whether it is youth, health, money, relationships or opportunities. Regret or hurt, betrayal or disappointment.

Apply these two verses personally and find hope in the future. You may not get back exactly what you lost, but we can believe that Abba God shall restore to us the years that the locusts have eaten.

The swarming locust, the crawling locus, the consuming locust and the chewing locust. They all represent different ways we experience loss. From sudden to slow. From mass to individual.

All are covered. God doesn’t leave out anything.

Let us declare through the lyrics of Restore:

My Redeemer, My Shepherd
Our spirits soar, our youth renewed,
As we wait on You
For what was lost, Your grace will pour
You give so much more
Restore us! 
Darkness turns to light. 
You are light. 
You draw us closer to Your side.

Eternal One, Your love has won my salvation
Restore my days, the wasted years
My Redeemer
Our spirits soar, our youth renewed
As we wait on You
For what was lost, Your grace will pour
You give so much more

Restore us! Darkness turns to light
You are light
You draw us closer to Your side
To Your side

The prodigal, embraced in love by the Father
In You I rest, My heart confess
You’re my Shepherd
Our spirits soar, our youth renewed
As we wait on You
For what was lost, Your grace will pour
You give so much more

Restore us! Darkness turns to light
You are light
You draw us closer to Your side
To Your side [repeat]

Hope comes alive in You
Jesus, Lord Jesus
Closer, draw near to You
Jesus, Lord Jesus [repeat]

Restore us! Darkness turns to light
You are light
You draw us closer to Your side
To Your side [repeat]
