When I am hurting and my heart is broken I always tend to run away, No matter the gesture or words spoken Nothing can make me want to stay. The sadness in my heart intensifies As I try to continue the facade, But I know that none of this Is what’s expected of a woman of God. I lift my hands, I surrender it all Lord, I am bringing you my heart, Please, Lord, I am asking you to heal it, Every single, shattered part. True strength comes from the Lord Of this we can be sure, We know His grace is sufficient And that His love for us is pure. So Lord, take away this sadness And all the pain I feel inside, And replace it with peace, love, and joy As all your commands, I abide. As I place my faith firmly in You I feel my strength reforming Because I know sorrow lasts for a night But joy comes in the morning.
