Carry the Wounded

We all have known someone Whose life has come undone But careful lest you fall For help you will call The Word was my desire To calm the raging fire Within me burning And solace I did find My wounds He did bind The trials were sent in love To make me rise above And like the prodigal son Thy will be done It's been some years I fear Since I to Him drew near I feel no pain inside The trials were sent in love To make me rise above And like the prodigal son Thy will be done Will I ever feel Your love again And is this empty heart something you'll mend Carry the wounded Can my mind and will on you depend Or will I fade into oblivion Carry the wounded, carry the wounded You are the lost sheep I long to find My love for you the unconditional kind Carry the wounded The plans I have for you are not to harm But you must listen, this is your alarm

The journey through our life can bring A place and time for everything A day of hope, a year of fears A thousand smiles, a million tears Our paths were meant to cross And I couldn't forget you No matter what the cost We both had to see this through Take my hand, take my heart We will never be apart Never be apart Because I love you Follow me and I'll lead you Lead me and I'll follow you Anywhere, anytime When the love is right The path is bright From the Father of lights you came And I know I'll never be the same again A beautiful gift has been given to me Your smiling face is all I see The look that's in your eyes And your smile that sets me free Has made me realize All that you see in me Take my hand, take my heart We will never be apart Never be apart Because I love you Follow me and I'll lead you Lead me and I'll follow you Anywhere, anytime When the love is right The path is bright Together now and forever You are the one You are my everything To me you bring The love that I have waited for The look that's in your eyes And your smile that sets me free Has made me realize All that you see in me Our paths were meant to cross And I couldn't forget you The soul in you is the soul in me The way that it was meant to be

Can't help about the shape I'm in I can't sing, I ain't pretty and my legs are thin Don't ask me what I think of you I might not give the answer that you want me to Oh well... Now when I talk to God I know He understands He says "Stick by me, I'll be your guiding hand" Don't ask me what I think of you I might not give the answer that you want me to Oh well...

Just a boy, you will not remember half The things you're going through right now How can I explain to you things don't Always go the way you want them to I know you feel confused Your mother never wanted this for you She did her best but that he wouldn't do You and I are brought together now by Wedding vows, vows that I have also made to you Flesh and blood though we are not I will love you as my own Now God's love is all we've got Together we can build a home All I want for you is to remember this Never will I turn my back on you This world will lie to you and take you for a ride How can I protect you from this path Only God can show you that the lights in life burn fast Never fosake your precious days of Youth I promise I will do my best for you Listen to me and I will listen too

There's a place in the human soul Where we want to be in charge of everything Take control It's not easy to lose the reigns When we feel that we're responsible for all our gains But the fact of the matter is That the credit is only His And the reason you take a breath Is the one who has conquered death Is a God of amazing grace Who is willing to plead your case Do you remember there was a day When you gave your life, your all to Him in every way But your love for Him soon grew cold And you found yourself conforming to the world's mold But the fact of the matter is That the credit is only His And the reason you take a breath Is the one who has conquered death Is a God of amazing grace Who is willing to plead your case When you think that you know best And you think that you can ride The wave out on the crest Then the things that He said are mute And the promises He made to you You give the boot By the time you think it over now Things have gotten worse somehow If you'd only given Him your all He'd have caught you long before the fall And you're looking at what could've been It's tails you lose and heads I win And you're looking at what might have been It's tails you lose and heads I win!
