Story

My God was one of those songs that popped up from nowhere... I never meant to write a gospel song, but it came to me as I was playing the piano one day, and reflecting on the glorious, radical life of Christ, and His ability in every situation to make broken people whole - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. And it's something He is still doing today for those who are prepared to admit that they are broken.

It's not necessarily a congregational song, although I have often done it very successfully with a choir singing backing vocals! And I've found it very useful as an evangelistic song, encouraging people to think about their lives, and what may be stopping them from giving their lives wholeheartedly to Him.

Lyrics

My God, full of mercy,
Heard our weeping,
Came to bring us home again.
My God takes the broken
And makes them whole.

My God touched the outcast,
Raised the lame man,
And He caused the blind to see.
My God takes the broken
And makes them whole.

My God stood for justice,
Shamed the prideful,
But He called the sinner ‘friend’.
My God takes the broken
And makes them whole.

My God felt the anguish
Of the soldier,
Made his child to live again.
My God takes the broken
And makes them whole.

My God, mocked and beaten,
Crushed and bleeding,
Yet crying ‘Father God, forgive.’
My God became broken
To make me whole.

My God, on the third day,
In the morning
Broke the shackles of the grave.
My God takes the broken
And makes them whole.

My God knows my failures,
Speaks forgiveness,
Gives me strength to try again.
My God takes the broken
And makes me whole.
