I am Broken

I am guilty

Ashamed of what I’ve done, What I’ve become

These hands are dirty

I dare not lift them up

I’ve been hiding

Afraid I’ve let you down,

Inside I doubt

That You still love me

Hiding what I’ve been going through

If you look me right in the eye

Would you see the pain deep inside

Would you take the time to

‘Cause right now I need a little hope

I need to know that I’m not alone

But I’ve got doubts and questions too

Behind this smile I’m really just like you

Afraid and tired and insecure

I am just like everyone

What do you think about when you look at me

Before all my scars and all my secrets were in the light

I just let go

And I feel exposed

Cuz this is who I am

I’ve been such a mess

But now I can’t care less

I could bleed to death

I was so caught up

In who I’m not

Can you please forgive me?

You called my name

I turned away

But now I

Am listening

Spent today in a conversation

In the mirror face to face with

Somebody less than perfect

I wouldn’t chose me first if

I was looking for a champion

In fact I’d understand if

You picked everyone before me

But that’s just not my story

You plead my cause

You right my wrongs

You break my chains

You overcome

You gave your life

To give me mine

You say that I am free

Tell me what I need to hear

Tell me that I’m not forgotten

Show me there’s a God

Who can be more than all I’ve ever wanted

Maybe God is calling you tonight

To tell me something

That might save my life

Jesus I need You, I need Your love

To save my life

I wish we could go back to simpler times

It’s going to take much more than promises this time

Only God can change our minds

But it’s so beautiful

True to who You are

You saw my heart

And made something out of nothing

I’m not meant to just stay quiet

I’m meant to be a lion

I’ll roar beyond a song

With every moment that I’ve got

He calls me chosen, free forgiven, wanted, child of the King,

His forever, held in treasure…

I am loved

Lord, I come, I confess

Bowing here I find my rest

Without You I fall apart

You’re the One that guides my heart

Lord, I need You,

Everyone hour I need You

My one defense, my righteousness

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more

Where grace is found is where You are

And where You are, Lord, I am free

Holiness is Christ in me

Though I fall, You can make me new

From this death I will rise with You

Oh the grace reaching out for me

Could we just be broken together

If you can bring your shattered dream and I’ll bring mine

Could healing still be spoken and save us

The only way we’ll last forever is broken together

Oh Lord I’m ready now

All the walls are down

Time is running out

And I wanna make this count

I ran away from you

And did what I wanted to

But I don’t wanna let you down

Lord I’m ready now

I don’t need my name in light

I’m famous in my Father’s eyes

Make no mistake

He knows my name

I’m not living for applause

I’m already so adored

It’s all His stage

Teach my song to rise to You

When temptation comes my way

And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You

Jesus, You’re my hope and stay

You know my name!
