The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Heart that was Broken for Me

There came from the skies
in the 4 days long a 1 go
The Lord with a message of 5 love
The world knew Him 1 not
he was 4 treated with 1 scorn
This wonderful 5 gift from a 1 bove

They crowned Him with thorns
he was beaten with straps
He was wounded and nailed to the tree
But the pain in His heart
was the hardest to bear
The heart that was broken for me

He came to His own
to his owners He loved
The sheep that had wandered astray
They heard not His voice
but the friend of mankind
Was halted and driven away

I will take up my cross
I will walk by His side
For the pathway of duty I see
I will follow my Lord
and abide in His heart
The heart that was broken for me
