"Bless The Broken Road" as written by Marcus Hummon, Robert E. Boyd and Jeff Hanna....
I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through

I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you
That every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms

This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
Yes it did

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
And others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know it's true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
Yeah

And now I'm rolling home
Into my lover's arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

That God blessed the broken road
Ooh, ooh
That led me straight to you

    General CommentI know he probably wrote this song about his girlfriend or wife, but to me every time I hear it it makes me think about Jesus. I love it.

    General CommentThat you go through boyfriends and girlfriends alot. Never knowing if its true love. But those who have hurt you..such as an ex boyfriend of mine. They have just made me stronger and have led me closer and closer to my true love. Like they say "others who broke my heart they were like northern stars, pointing me on my way into your loving arms, this much i know is true, that god blessed the broke road, that led me straight to you" The broken road i think is the life before your true love...so all the hurt all the pain all the people you dated and all the heart breaks..and god blessed it and made us realize many things and taught us a lesson.

    General CommentWell... I haven't experienced my final love yet... since I just broke up with my girlfriend. I have witnessed many people finally making it past the broken road. And because of this song, I chose to let my broken raod lead me to my love other then looking at other girls lustfully.

    General CommentThe line "now I'm just rolling home" is an underhand jibe from songwriter Marcus Hummon about singer Gary Levox's ever so slightly rotund disposition, has nobody else spotted this?!?

    General CommentThis song makes me cry every time I hear it, but I really love it! I'm still traveling down my broken road, but I know that all of the bad experiences I've had with my exes will just make me appreciate it even more when I do find the love of my life.
