Hurts

“The Hurt and The Healer” by MercyMe

Why?
The question that is never far away
But healing doesn’t come from the explained
*Jesus, please don’t let this go in vain
You’re all I have, all that remains

*So here I am, what’s left of me
*When glory meets my suffering

(Chorus)
*I’m alive
*Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
*I fall into your arms open wide
*When the hurt and the healer collide

Breathe
Sometimes I feel it’s all that I can do
*Pain so deep that I can hardly move
Just keep my eyes completely fixed on You
Lord, take hold and pull me through

So here I am, what’s left of me
When glory meets my suffering

*I’m alive
*Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
*I fall into your arms open wide
*When the hurt and the healer collide

It’s the moment when humanity

Is overcome by majesty

*When grace is ushered in for good
*And all our scars are understood

When mercy takes its rightful place
And all these questions fade away
When out of weakness we must bow
And hear you say “It’s over now”

*I’m alive
*Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
*I fall into your arms open wide
*When the hurt and the healer collide

Jesus, come and break my fear

*Wake my heart and take my tears
Find your glory even here
When the hurt and the healer collide

*I’m alive
*Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
*I fall into your arms open wide
*When the hurt and the healer collide

*I’m alive
*Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
*I fall into your arms open wide
*When the hurt and the healer collide

*I’m alive
*Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
*I fall into your arms open wide
*When the hurt and the healer collide

UPDATE:

  5. You are truly beautiful Tracey and a strong inspiration in my life. I can relate to the words of the song in that no matter what transpires ….when I open my heart to our Lord and trust that all things will work out — I usually get a new view of what is going on and the strength to keep moving forward. As always – you are amazing and so full of love.

    Love Michelle
