Sometimes I feel broken
and there are things that I never say to anyone
like sometimes I don’t feel rescued
and sometimes I don’t believe you love me at all

When I allow myself the fantasy
that I might have made you proud
I feel ashamed

I honestly believe with all of my soul
that you love the whole world
just maybe not me

It’s not that I feel overlooked or that you’ve done me wrong
maybe at the end of the day, I just don’t love myself

When I try to impress you I hate myself
and I could run better if I could stay on track
and every time I turn around, every time you welcome me back
It’s hard to love someone so big and be someone so small
and I’m afraid that you are the one who thinks I don’t love you at all
(but I do!)

You rend the veil that hides your face
You speak light into the dark
You’ve beaten back the hoards of death
You tear their crowns apart
No more aching and crying
You lift the burden of my shame
No more breaking and dying
You remember my name

The ill and affirmed leave their sickness behind
all disease is crushed in defeat
The shadows shrinking back, disappear in the light
the paralyzed rise to their feet

The broken and oppressed overflow with joy
The abused become royalty
Darkness and despair are banished for good
and death can find no loyalty

The tormented see peace in the fading night
and all of the brokenhearted feel their hearts begin to mend
The lowercase gods are all crushed by the King
The hungry and destitute will never go without again

War and poverty are vanquished
No pain, no suffering, no dismay
Evil, death and all their friends are forever washed away

Our faith in you will cry out for the day
Our hope in you will not be misplaced
for now we see through a fogged piece of glass
but soon we will see face to face

You rend the veil that hides your face
You speak light into the dark
You’ve beaten down the hoards of death
You’ve torn their crowns apart
Come Lord, come! Let the last be first
Wipe every tear from the face of the earth
Put all wrongs to right
Make everything new
the cancer of death is defeated by you
