Every beat of my broken heart

This is not what I asked, not what I prayed for…
Are you listening now?
‘Cause all that I’ve built, all that I’ve bled for
is coming undone…

But what if it had to be broken
before my heart could be open?

Maybe the shattered parts
are the places where Your love starts…
And now I am closer to where You are
with every beat of my broken heart.

Maybe it’s not what I would’ve chosen,
and I won’t understand;
but I’m trusting You now, ’cause all that I know is
I am safe in Your hands.

But what if it had to be broken
before my heart could be open?

Maybe the shattered parts
are the places where Your love starts…
And now I am closer to where You are
with every beat of my broken heart.
Mercy is here with me
even if I can’t see it now…
I am closer to where You are
with every beat of my broken heart.

So break me all the way, ‘til we are face to face:
When Your work in me is through, then all that’s left is You…

Chorus

I am closer to where You are
with every beat of my broken, beat of my broken heart.

Luke 4
16  And He [Jesus] came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up: and, as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.  17  And there was delivered unto Him the book of the prophet Esaias [Isaiah 61:1].  And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written,  18  “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,  19  to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”  20  And He closed the book, and He gave it again to the minister, and sat down.  And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on Him.  21  And He began to say unto them, “This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.”

Psalm 34:18 
The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Psalm 147
2  The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: He gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.  3  He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.  4  He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names.  5  Great is our Lord, and of great power: His understanding is infinite.

Lamentations 3 
21  This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.  22  It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  23  They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
