The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18)
When your love came and healed my broken heart
You lifted me up, gave salve to each bruise,
The promise of granting a brand new start.
I was flat on my face, how could I refuse?
Heart to heart you said you’d never depart
And I wonder what in me made you choose
To hold me so tightly, to embrace me;
To hold me so tightly, to embrace me?
Your love did snatch me from death’s calling door
And poured in me the Holy Spirit’s guide.
Now I, with his eyes, can your words explore
And meaning becomes clear as I abide
And see your love’s the answer evermore,
Yet I wonder still when did you decide
To forgive me so completely with grace;
To forgive me so completely with grace?
As I ponder your love, vital, profound
It leaves me in wonder times I am in doubt.
Your gentle grace speaks in ways that astound
I don’t worry what your thoughts are about.
With no condition or laws to confound
Your love is forever there to give out,
To love me so boldly, without restraint;
To love me so boldly, without restraint.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:29)
