Broken Things Lyrics

If grace is a kingdom
I’ve stopped at the gate
Thinking I don’t deserve to pass through after all of the mistakes I’ve made
But I heard a whisper
As Heaven bent down
Said, “Child, don’t know you that the first will be last and the last get a crown.”

Now I’m just a beggar in the presence of a King
I wish I could bring You so much more
But if it’s true You use broken things
Then here I am Lord, I am all Yours

The pages of history they tell me it’s true
That it’s never the perfect; it’s always the ones with the scars that You use
It’s the rebels and the prodigals; it’s the humble and the weak
The misfit heroes You chose
Tell me there’s hope for sinners like me

Grace is a kingdom
With gates open wide
There’s seat at the table just waiting for you
So, come on inside

    I though my 3 year old daughter only knew “Let it go” from the movie Frozen until this song came on the radio the other day. She began singing during the chorus and belting out “OHHH OHH OHH” when that part came on. It reminded me again how much her little ears hear and why listening to radio stations like this is important to me and my family. Now whenever I hear this song it gives me goose bumps! “The misfit hero’s You chose tell me there’s hope for sinners like me.” Every line in this song is beautiful!
