I was walking through the garden yesterday
Pondering the wandering of life and my dismay
'Cause I have fallen down again
And I cannot begin to mend
The wounds that bind me to this place
This garden of my fear and shame
And as I wandered through the trees
I came into a clearing
Where in the center sat a man
With a crown on his head and holes in his hands
He beckoned me, said come and sit
Speak with me for just a bit
So I sat down there beside
And he questioned me about my life
I told him all that I had loved
Of family, friends, and the stars above
Yet while we spoke his eyes were drawn
To the scars that I'd forgone
He softly asked me may I know
What it is that made you so
These are the fissures that break me
They're consuming everything I am
All I have done, all the things I have felt
They have torn me up from skin to soul
'Cause I'm not whole
I'm far from holy
And I'm unworthy
To sit here now
Oh child… he replied
As a tear fell from his shadowed eyes
It was never meant to be this way
I didn't want you to know this pain
But once this world was cursed by sin
The fissures then had entered in
The vile, cursed, great divide
Between my love and your precious lives
When I looked up to see his face
There was something deep within his gaze
The fissures of the world ran through
The one whose love was the only truth
Everything and everyone
Including me, held in the Son
The chasm bridged and hope restored
Though I still lived as one abhorred
Oh Father, save me I cried
As he clasped his broken hands to mine
And from those broken hands poured forth
The blood of the lamb, the blood of my Lord
Into the fissures this world had made
The scars of my fear and the wounds of my shame
And this is the song that my heart did sing
The song of redemption by the death of a king
What cause have I
To lift my voice at all
When I've been falling
And I'm a wreck again
If you break my legs so I don't run
And crush my lungs 'till you're enough
Could I ever speak for you
Could I ever be for you
Does anyone else see
That sometimes
I don't want to be alright
I just want you to let me fall
For so long
Hey, God I've still got questions
About the way you love me
And how you could love someone like that
When you love thousands the same
She loved you, Lord. Why did you leave her
If I wrote a song about how I feel
Would you use it for your glory
I could never write or say anything
Without telling the world of your story
It's more than a decade
It's everything I am
Super glue and thumb tacks
Duct tape and life hacks
I'm dying to be
May your words become
Who I am
Though years will pass
And all will surely change
I'd never go back
For it's you that I have
The Lord of all shall claim his bride
And Satan will have been denied
So I'm singing my praises
To the King of the Ages
You are Holy and You are Worthy
So what of these fissures that break me
They are filled by the blood of the Lamb
All I have done, all the things I have felt
They are dim in the light of His scars
Now I'm made whole
'Cause He is Holy
And He is worthy
To be my song
Now I'm made whole
'Cause He is Holy
And He is worthy
To be my song
