Close To The Brokenhearted
This is based on a passage in Psalms that is one of my all-time favorites – “close
to the brokenhearted.” He’s proven that true in my life over and over and over
again. It seems that breaking our hearts is one way He gets in deeper. On this
occasion I was feeling not only brokenhearted, but like the three Jewish boys, in
the firey furnace, hoping to see the Fourth Man walking around the fire with me.
He is, and I do!

D        Bm               G         A

You’re close to the brokenhearted

D        Bm               G               A

You’re near when my life falls apart

D          Bm            G            A     

It’s your love that’ll get me started hoping

D             Bm      G              A

There’s a way through this dark



D  A  Bm  G  A

Mercy, mercy

D  A  Bm  G  A

Help me, help me



D        Bm               G         A

You’re close when I’m in the fire

D        Bm               G         A

You’re near when the flames overwhelm

D        Bm               G         A

It’s your grace that’ll get me started hoping

D        Bm               G         A

There’s a way out of this hell



D  A  Bm  G  A

Mercy, mercy

D  A  Bm  G  A

Help me, help me

D  A  Bm  G  A

I see (you) with me, I see (you) with me
