Broken for our Brokenness
By Kevin Bueltmann & Nikki Peters
1. Wandering, aimlessly, drifting around
Life’s imperfections, bringing us down
Hope lay in pieces all over the ground
But You give us peace, In You we are found!
You were crushed - to crush all our sinfulness
You were wrecked - to heal us from wretchedness
You were humbled. You give us humbleness
You were broken for our brokenness.
2. Stricken, afflicted, You carry our grief
Mocked and rejected, You give us relief
Abandoned, forsaken and pierced for our sin
Death lies defeated! The grave did not win!
You have conquered our sin
Changed all our hearts from within
For Your Word in all its holiness (pause)
Has spoken to our brokenness
Chorus 2: All our fear - You turn into fearlessness
Your deep love - it brings out more love in us
All our hopelessness turns to hopefulness
You were broken for our brokenness

"Broken & Poured Out" is most often song during or right before communion. The lyrics focus on the Scriptures that talk about the Lord's Supper. Matthew 26:26-29, Mark 14:22-24, Luke 22:14-20, 1 Corinthians 10:16-17; 11:23-29
Broken & Poured Out
By Kevin Bueltmann
Chords: Am F G Am-G-Am-G
While they were eating, Jesus took the bread,
Gave thanks and broke it, and then He said:
"This is my body given just for thee.
Do this in remembrance of me."
Chorus: Broken – Poured out.
Broken and Poured out all for me.
Broken – Poured out.
Broken and Poured out all for you.
Then he took the cup, gave thanks for it too.
Offered it to them, “Drink from it. All of you.”
This is my blood of the covenant,
Poured out for all to forgive your sin. Chorus
Is this not the bread? Is this not the wine?
From a simple loaf and the fruit of the vine?
This is His body. This is His blood.
This is His forgiveness and this is His love.
Truly I will say, His presence is so real
When we come together and join in this meal.
When you eat this bread, When you drink this cup,
You proclaim the Lord's death until he comes. Chorus
