THE HEART THET WAS BROKEN FOR US LYRICS

THE HEART THET WAS BROKEN FOR US

J. W. VAN DE VENTER

1. There came from the skies I’m the days long ago
The lord with a message of love
The world knew him not
He was treated with scorn this wonderful gift from above

Chorus

They crowned him with thorns
He was beaten with stripes
He was smitten and nailed to the tree
But the pain in his heart was the hardest to bear
The heart that was broken for me
I will take up my cross l, I will work by his side
For the path way of duty I see,
I will follow my lord and abide in his heart,
The heart that was broken for me, for me.

 

2. He came to his own to the ones that he loved
The sheep that had wandered astray
There heard not his voice
But the friend of mankind
Was hated and driven away

3. The birds have their nests, and the foxes have holes
But had no ace for his head
A pallet of stone in the cold mountain side
Was all that he had for his bed

4. I cannot reject a savior as he
Dishonored and wound him again
I’ll go to his feet and repent of my sin,
Be willing to suffer the pain.
