Broken Man Lyrics

I’ve done a little living

Things I ain’t proud of

And my best intentions

They all turn to dust

Burned some bridges, learned some lessons

Made me who I am today

Somewhere between a sinner and saint

I get lost, I get found

Lose my way, but I turn around

Hit my knees, lift a prayer

Once again

Ask for mercy, ask for grace

Then I do the best I can

And I thank God he loves a broken man

Got a couple children

And a wife I love

Their eyes are watching

I don’t want mess this up

I’ve come so far from the man that I was

Still I’ve got so far to go

Holding to the one thing that I know

I get lost, I get found

Lose my way, but I turn around

Hit my knees, lift a prayer

Once again

Ask for mercy, ask for grace

Then I do the best I can

And I thank God he loves a broken man

Somehow I’ve seen heaven

Use the hell I raised

To bring me from the ashes

And show me I can change

Oh, even I can change

I get lost, I get found

Lose my way, but I turn around

Hit my knees, lift a prayer

Once again

Ask for mercy, ask for grace

Then I do the best I can

And I thank God he loves a broken man

One story about "Broken Man"

  • Jason Mason says:

    Well this song tells my story like I am sure it does a lot of others. I was raised in an alcoholic home and learned to do the same things my parents did. (drink booze) At the age of 27 I was broken, at the age of 28 I got saved and my whole life changed!!! That was 16 years ago. I was broken but God put me back together. As I walk out my faith I have realized that I will always need Gods grace and mercy. I ask God quite often for them. In His grace he has given me a new start in a lot of areas in my life. From an awesome wife with 4 kids 23 , 21 , 5 and 1 1/2 yrs old…The 2 youngest are my second chance children because I missed out on so much with the older ones when they were little because of my wild living. During my younger years I got in some trouble with the law and lost my rights to own a gun and hunt but my rights have been restore…Thank God He loves a broken man!!!! I love the Rhett Walker band!! I met Rhett at Benton IL and told him that his music was the music I have been waiting for all my Christianity!!!
