My Broken Hallelujah

Here I am

With a broken heart,

But still I know

This is just the start. 

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

For now I’ve had

To say goodbye

To someone I loved

Oh, my heart it cries.

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

I don’t understand,

But I know You’re good

I’m letting go

For you say I should.

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

And now today

You’re asking me

To feel the pain

So you can set me free.

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.

 

You say, “My child,

It meant too much

Held in a place

Only I should touch.”

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

In my reply

I tell You to

Do whatever it is

You need to do.

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

Because I know

There’s nothing more

Important than knowing

You, my Lord.

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

And so you come

With a healing pain

That strikes like lightning,

But softens like rain.

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

I scream I cry,

It hurts so deep,

But it’s beautiful

Even as I weep.

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.

 

And now You can

Open up my eyes

To see what You’re doing.

Oh, such surprise!

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

That here in the midst

Of my suffering

You’re orchestrating

A brand-new thing.

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

Now that my heart

Is fully yours

Not clinging to this world

This Love, it soars!

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

Right through the cracks

Left by my scars

Your light bursts through

Bright as the stars.

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

Your purposes

Your plans for me

They’re blossoming.

Yes, now I see!

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

That even when

I cry and grieve

You’re building beauty,

Oh, I believe!

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

My life is now

Fully for you,

You took this heart

Broken and bruised.

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

You made it whole.

Whole doesn’t mean no pain!

It means it’s yours

No piece in vain.

 

This is my broken hallelujah

 

Take my life

I lay it down.

For you are worthy,

My King, my crown.

 

This is my broken hallelujah.

 

Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah!

 

Forever and ever. Hallelujah. No matter what. For You are worthy.

My Savior and my God.
