This song written by Bryan Jeffery Leech embraces and challenges us to:
– to reject the low plains of selfish living
– to reject the excuse that man-made systems around us are beyond our control
– to reject the notion that employment can only be had by a compromising few
– to reject the urge to do nothing about the suffering all around us
Here are the lyrics of Bryan Jeffery Leech’s song:
Let Your Heart Be Broken
Let your heart be broken for a world in need:
Feed the mouths that hunger, soothe the wounds that bleed,
Give the cup of water and the loaf of bread
Be the hands of Jesus, serving in His stead.
Here on earth applying principles of love,
Visible expression God still rules above
Living illustration of the Living Word
To the minds of all whove Never seen or heard.
Blest to be a blessing privileged to care,
Challenged by the need apparent everywhere.
Where mankind is wanting, fill the vacant place.
Be the means through which the Lord reveals His grace.
Add to your believing deeds that prove it true,
Knowing Christ as Savior, make Him Master, too.
Follow in His footsteps, go where He has trod;
In the worlds great trouble risk yourself for God.
Let your heart be tender and your vision clear;
See mankind as God sees, serve Him far and near.
Let your heart be broken by a brothers pain;
Share your rich resources, give and give again.
If each person made it his or her life work to reach out to those around us, our world would be a much better place.
