pick up the pieces and give them to jesus---need lyrics

need lyrics to a song peter denying the Lord and then God using him...
something like " Shouts of rejoicing were heard on the hillside as peter now forgiven he stood with great power" and then the chorus is "pick up the pieces and give them to Jesus..He came to free you from the guilts of your past.Your life is not over because of your failure..Just pick up the pieces and give them to him"

The moment of silence, took place in a courtyard
As Peter and Jesus stood eye to eye.
The crow of the rooster still echoed through the darkness
As face to face with Jesus, Peter denied.

Tears of repentance, they flowed down Peters garment
As he cried out in anguish, "Lord what have I done?"
He prayed, please forgive me, wrap your arm around me.
I want to be that man you can always count on.

Shouts of rejoicong were heard on a hillside
As Peter who was now forgiven
Well he preached with great power.
The spirit came and dwelt there
Three thousand souls were saved there
As Peter shouted, Satan, come and look at me now.

I picked up the pieces and gave them to Jesus
He came to free me from the guilt of my sin
My life is not over because of my failure
I picked up the pieces and gave them to Him.

I was searching for a good offertory song with the topic Pick Up The Pieces and stumbled across this post. It took much searching for the song on YouTube until I stumbled on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlex1YK ... Crew-Topic
I'm wondering if the poster above me was the writer of the song? The final song seems to have changed a bit of the lyrics but the rest is exactly the same. Just wanted to say it's such a beautiful song.

It was apparently released May of 2012, but the guest poster submitted the lyrics above on April 2012. I hope the poster gets credited if they really were the original writer. Going to be asking the men in the church to sing it this Sunday.

All the love from a small local church here in the Philippines. <3

Thanks for your message KatChu!

Over the years we've had lots of visitors and lurkers who have been the authors and composers of hymns, so who knows, it's certainly possible. :)

May the Lord bless you and your small local church in the Philippines! :)

Steve
