Break Our Hearts

Teach us, oh Lord, what it really means

to rend our hearts instead of outer things

Teach us, oh God, what we do not see
about our hearts and of your(our) ways
             C#m          B           F#m
And Father, deal with our carnal desires
                  C#m      B             F#m
to move in your power but not live the life
                   C#m         B           F#m
And to love our neighbor with all that we have
               C#m        B                 Bsus     B
And keep our tongues from saying things we have not seen

E              A              F#m                 E
Oh, break our hearts with the things that break yours
              A              F#m      E
If we sow in tears, we will reap in joy
                       A           F#m    E
That we might pass through your refining fire
                  A           F#m    E
Where brokeness awaits on the other side (2x)

Raise up an army like Joel saw,
your church that is stronger that ever before
They do not break ranks,
when they plunge through defenses
But the fear of the Lord will be their wisdom

That they might weep as Jesus wept
a fountain of tears for the wounded and lost
Who ever heard of an army of God
That conquered the earth
by weeping and mourning and brokeness?

E                    A           F#m            E
But there will be a day when the nations will bow
                       A       F#m       E
And our Lord will be King over all the earth
            A      F#m    E
And he will be the only one,
             A                F#m     E
and also his name will be the only one
