YOU’VE MADE MY LIFE INTO A TAPESTRY OF GOLD (Song Lyrics)

gold footpath

Chorus
You’ve made my life into a tapestry of gold
You’ve made my days so new and banished days of old
You’ve taken everything from me I didn’t hold
And brought me into Your sweet and eternal fold

Before I was known in earth
Before the world began
You loved me, cherished me
For me had an awesome plan

And then Love, You hand-stitched me
Placed all intricately
Blew on my finished frame
New life in my family tree

Chorus
You’ve made my life into a tapestry of gold
You’ve made my days so new and banished days of old
You’ve taken everything from me I didn’t hold
And brought me into Your sweet and eternal fold

All was well in innocence
Then I started changing
Wanting things my own way
Undoing Your arranging

Every little stitch that I
Tried to call my own, it
Undid each stitch You wove
And my life, no longer fit

Chorus
You’ve made my life into a tapestry of gold
You’ve made my days so new and banished days of old
You’ve taken everything from me I didn’t hold
And brought me into Your sweet and eternal fold

I realized I was wrong
This tapestry, now dull
No more stitches of gold
Just old and drab and null

And so I cried to the Lord
I’m sorry, please rescue me
Sew threads of heaven’s love
And may gold again I see

Bridge
Unfold my life dear Lord
Unfold it till it glows
Glows with all of heaven’s light
And joy forever flows

Chorus
You’ve made my life into a tapestry of gold
You’ve made my days so new and banished days of old
You’ve taken everything from me I didn’t hold
And brought me into Your sweet and eternal fold
