These Broken Hands of Mine


Track #10 from 'Constellation Me'


Take a breath, I close my eyes

I am lost but try to find

What it is, in this life

That gives me strength enough to fight for something more


Well God knows my feet are aching

And I’ve got mountains ahead to climb…


One way at a time,

I will try to lend these broken hands of mine

Give me strength, be my light,

One way at a time

These walls will fall and fill our empty souls

Give me strength, help me guide

These broken hands of mine


The sky is grey it clouds your world

Clear the air child, break the mold

Find a place, in your heart

To build a shelter from this cold and winding road


Well God knows you’re barely standing

But you’ve got to carry this heavy load…


One way at a time

I will try to lend these broken hands of mine

Give me strength, be my light

One way at a time, the peace will grow

And fill our empty souls

Give me strength, help me guide

These broken hands of mine


What if there’s more?

What if there’s more?

What if there’s more than this?

What if there’s more out there?


- Joe Brooks

As you write, may Jesus completely wreck your life, inspiring you to compose His grace and love through song. Broken people are going to hear these words and be completely changed. Praying hardcore for every one of them.

I haven't heard this song yet, but just by reading the lyrics I think this is my favorite song of yours. It completely encompasses how I feel many times in ministry; wanting to lend a hand to others but needing God's strength to do it.

God has blessed you with an amazing talent and gift. I can't wait to hear the album.
God Bless,
Katie

May God bless you as you run the race for him. this song is beautiful and is my fave along with 'lift you up'. It is my prayer that people will get a glimpse of God and his unfailing love through these songs. You were epic at Soul Survivor! :)

Keep up the awesome work!! x
