 The Beauty Of Brokeness

by Alan Martin...

O for the beauty of brokenness
a treasure of trials sent by God
the gift of His crucible's fire
the blessing of discipline's rod

For muscles are built up by tearing
made stronger through intensive pain
So faith if it would be found worthy
must know severe mercy through pain

Our source of salvation through suffering
a merciful High Priest was made
Subjected to weakness and anguish
He groaned and He cried - but obeyed

And when through His anguish enduring
was come to His fullness complete
A sacrifice perfect He offered
His head, then His hands, then His feet

And wounded and broken and bleeding
and gasping for breath lifted high
The purest love ever earth witnessed
the Righteous One for sinners died

And would we be formed to His likeness
His image to bear and His name
must realize the beauty of brokenness
and welcome the blessing of pain
