I'm tired 
I'm worn 
My heart is heavy
From the work it takes to keep on breathing


I've made mistakes 
I've let my hope fail
My soul feels crushed
By the weight of this world
And I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart that's frail and torn


I want to know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that's dead inside can be reborn
Cause I'm worn

I know I need 
To lift my eyes up
But I'm too week
Life just won't let up
And I know that You can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart that's frail and torn

I want to know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that's dead inside can be reborn
Cause I'm worn

And my prayers are wearing thin
I'm worn even before the day begins
I'm worn I've lost my will to fight
I'm worn so heaven so come and fluid my eyes

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart that's frail and torn

I want to know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that's dead inside can be reborn
Yes all that's dead inside will be reborn
Though I'm worn 
Yeah I'm worn

    Bless the honest souls who wrote these lyrics. They help me get in touch with my grief over the loss of my husband to cancer 20 months ago.

    I think that this song means that even if your worn and torn that god can still fix it and we all need to know that he loves us more than anything. And the bible says we need to hate our brothers sisters and parents compared to how much we love god. We need to hate our wives and sons our husbands and daughters compared to how much we love god. I know that I am not just a fan of god who only sits in the stands and cheers for him on my terms, but I am a fully committed follower of god who no matter what loves him and follows him. No matter what happens we love him. A follower is someone who loves him and doesn't only follow god inside. I am a girl who wares Jesus loud and proud. It has cost me a lot of my friends my reputation and even my family. Just think how wonderful it would be if everyone could be a fully committed follower of god. I just want to say that if anybody that reads this has a friend of family member that is not a christian, I strongly encourage you to go take a leap of faith and talk to them about Jesus. I'm not saying that it's going to be easy but it never is. I will be praying for all of you.

    I have taken this song to heart. I love it so much. This really speaks to me because I use to be depressed for a long time. It just reminds me so much of how we're supposed to have joy in our suffering because every time we think "oh poor us" we have to know that there is always someone some where in the world that is worse off than us. I'm not trying to judge anybody because I am one of those people that forgets this too but I am saying to remember because we all have a heart that's worn and torn. I also want to say that I love all of you guys even if I don't know you. I will always be praying for you guys no matter what you have done and no matter what you are doing. I also want to ask for your prayers because I am only 12 almost 13 and I don't want to be brought down by the people in my grade. I know I can't walk away from every situation but I just really need prayer right now, with all the homosexual things happening. Thank you all so much. I love you and I'll be praying for you.

    After all the cheating, the lying, the drinking, the crack piling, and masquerading I've done during the 5-1/2 years we've been married as a response to my childlessness, this song purely expresses the sorrow of my repentant heart. Thank you, Tenth Avenue North. You, through this song, have managed to wrench me from the pit of despair, suicide, and eternal death to a far different place, a place where I am thirsting for God's absolution and the life of the world to come. Oh yeah: did I tell you I love this song?!
