Buried and frozen in the ground–
A soul that has been left to ashes
At the foot of the cross.

How can You fix this?
This mess I’ve made of me.
How can You make
Beauty from these ashes?

Maybe all it takes is giving up my crown.
What price is this when You
Gave me Your life?

Will You raise these ashes
From their frigid grave?

Come burn within me,
Turn my heart into gold.
Resurrect my soul
Resurrect my life.

Where can I find my redemption?
Where can I find my victory?

At the foot of the cross,
Where You laid Your life down
To crown me with glory.

And this will always be my battle cry,
The story of how You turned
My ashes into gold.
