He’s The Healer Of Broken Hearts
Is your life full of heartaches and sadness
Are your dreams all shattered and torn
There is one who thru mercy and suff’ring
For you ev’ry sorrow has borne
He’s the healer of broken hearts
He’ll mend your shattered dreams
He’ll pick up the threads
Of your broken life
And weave them together again
To your soul He’ll bring peace and joy
A friend in need He’ll be
The healer of broken hearts
Is Jesus of Galilee
Do the threads of your life seem so tangled
That you wish you had never been born
There is one who is willing to help you
He knows ev’ry sorrow you’ve borne
