I can’t hold my life together
All I seek, all I try, all I seize
Shatters on the floor forever
I’m left crying on my knees

I’m like a broken pot.
I can’t hold anything in me
I lie and wish it was not
But you can look right through and see

Carry me, Lord… carry me…
To the place of I cannot see
Where you fill my moments of time
Where I can never be the same

I’m broken, completely broken!
Everything in my life is falling apart.
It’s only when I let God enter my life
That I’m complete and He holds me.

He picks up the pieces
He fills out all my broken spaces
And through his piecesHe gives me life, strength, and purpose
