Ellie Holcomb — “The Broken Beautiful”

Posted on Updated on

imgres-2As we continue in our study of themes in the prophets on Sunday morning, I like to be reminded of that overall idea in each message…that God can things that we have broken in our lives and restore them.  He takes the ashes and makes beauty from them.

Here is a hope-giving message in an upbeat song by Ellie Holcomb, “The Broken Beautiful.”

Verse 1
I know that I don’t bring a lot to the table
Just little pieces of a broken heart
There’s days I wonder if you’ll still be faithful
Hold me together when I fall apart
Would you remind me now of who you are?

Chorus
That your love will never change, that there’s healing in your name
And that you can take broken things and make them beautiful
You took my shame and you walked out of the grave
So your love can take broken things and make them
Beautiful and make them beautiful

Verse 2
I’m better off when I begin to remember
How you have met me in my deepest pain
So give me glimpses now of how you have covered
All of my heartache, oh, with all your grace
Remind me now that you can make a way

Chorus
That your love will never change, that there’s healing in your name
And that you can take broken things and make them beautiful
You took my shame and you walked out of the grave
So your love can take broken things and make them
Beautiful and make them beautiful

Bridge
You say that you’ll turn my weeping into dancing
Remove my sadness and cover me with joy
You say your scars are the evidence of healing
That you can make the broken beautiful

Chorus
‘Cause your love will never change, and there’s healing in your name
And you will take broken things and make them beautiful
You took my shame and you walked out of the grave
So your love can take broken things and make them
Beautiful and make them beautiful
and make them beautiful you make us beautiful you make us beautiful
