A BROKEN WING MELODY

How will this broken wing ever fly
If I just give up, don’t even try
I cry out, Father, please mend my wing
I’ll soar on high, and my heart will sing

Ah! This broken wing has me downcast
My eyes wander on circumstance past
Must lift my head, sad eyes heavenward
To see Jesus, as You said I would

It feels so very bound with life’s care
And all who see me, wander, and stare
For I’m dragging lifeless melodies
This stone cold heart, only Father sees

But my wing isn’t really broken
And no-one sees what I have spoken
’Tis only a mind, believing lies
When a heart, all out, it tries and tries

How will this broken wing ever fly
If I just give up, don’t even try
I cry out, Father, please mend my wing
I’ll soar on high, and my heart will sing

I do want to be so mended though
So off to the prayer closet I go
Father, forgive me my brokenness
I will, and think nothing of you less

I see you floundering upon earth
I see your heart struggles to find worth
You are trying to fly on old wings
You have yet to receive what love brings

I’m going to open your heart now
Just believe in Me, and don’t ask how
Going to open those pretty eyes
Open closed off ears, and cast out lies

The prison door no more holds captive
Look to Me, my child, look and you’ll live
Reach forth, spread both wings, and learn to fly
Beat those new wings, freedom’s in the sky

Yes, this broken wing is healed to fly
I didn’t give up, I daily try
I cried out, Father, please mend my wing
He did, I soar, my heart can now sing

Oh! He healed this broken wing of mine
Healed it eternal, so I can shine
Fly, and scatter precious seeds on high
Comfort the suffering, and tears dry
