Two men walked on the road to Emmaus
Blind to a stranger they met on their way
Late in the evening, they asked him to supper
To break bread together at the close of the day
The stranger took the bread, then bowed his head
Then asked for a blessing then he broke it
Into pieces of three
He gave to these blind men this bread
Blessed and broken
And suddenly their blinded eyes did see

His life was blessed far more than I could ever imagine
He was touched by God's grace more than I'll ever know
Then he was broken by the hand of the father
To bring sight, to all blind men who are lost on their way
After God blessed him, and after God broke him
He was given to bring sight to all men
When he was blessed
When he was broken
Then after he was given
God blessed him, and broke him, again and again

My life've been blessed far more than I could ever imagine
I've been touched by God's grace more than I'll ever know
So let me be broken through the suffering and the sorrow,
Let me feel what you felt when you were broken for me

After my blessing, and after my breaking
Let me be given to bring sight to all men
When I've been blessed and
When I've been broken
Then after I've been given
Lord bless me, Lord break me, again and again
Lord bless me, and break me, again and again

    This comes from the scripture about taking part in the fellowship of his suffering. God will do us like he did christ. We will be blessed, then we will be broken (willing to recieve his instruction, able to be used by god), and then given to others (our testimony shared with others, sharing the gospel) so they will see god's work and choose to become a part of the kingdom.
