Broken by the world, surprised by their angry words
I stand before you Lord, so tired in this world.
Weary and battered, by those I once called “my friends”
please take these broken pieces I now hold within my hands…
You find me on my knees as I begin to ask
Just how much longer you think that I can last…
And then I realize YOU’RE the one who truly knows
the sting in the world’s curses and it’s flailing blows,
and so I begin to let go, laying everything at your feet
Falling on my face, I know you see the real me.
As I realize it’s all just a speck in time
and it’s really about the piece of YOU that I leave behind!!!
Guide me as I talk, let your words be ones I choose
For YOU know today this mountain must be moved.
As I form the sentences let them come from YOU…
Filled with strength and grace and only what is true.
As I walk in faith, let me find YOU in every choice
And as I seek your will today, let them hear YOUR voice.
Take these broken pieces Lord, for they don’t belong to me!
Remind me that in their “brokeness” YOU have the victory!
