Let Your Heart Be Broken

Verse 1

Let your heart be broken
For a world in need:
Feed the mouths that hunger,
Soothe the wounds that bleed,
Give the cup of water
And the loaf of bread—
Be the hands of Jesus,
Serving in His stead.

Verse 2

Here on earth applying
Principles of love,
Visible expression—
God still rules above—
Living illustration
Of the Living Word
To the minds of all who’ve
Never seen or heard.

Verse 3

Blest to be a blessing,
Privileged to care,
Challenged by the need—
Apparent everywhere.
Where mankind is wanting,
Fill the vacant place.
Be the means through which the
Lord reveals His grace.

Verse 4

Add to your believing
Deeds that prove it true,
Knowing Christ as Savior,
Make Him Master, too.
Follow in His footsteps,
Go where He has trod;
In the world’s great trouble
Risk yourself for God.

Verse 5

Let your heart be tender
And your vision clear;
See mankind as God sees,
Serve Him far and near.
Let your heart be broken
By a brother’s pain;
Share your rich resources,
Give and give again.
