"Broken Wing"

I had a broken wing and couldn’t fly.
My spirit was so wounded I didn’t want to try.

But helplessly I fluttered trying to take flight.
If I couldn’t fly again, I knew I’d lose the fight.

Then someone came along who said He’d be my friend.
He was the great healer called the "Son of Man."

He told me if I’d trust in Him, He could make my fly;
And fix my broken wing, so I would never die.

I asked the cost I had to pay for doing this for me;
He said there is no price for grace, it was given free.

Because of His great mercy, He was called a "King,"
And only came to save me, and fix my broken wing.

I don't think there's such a thing as a "good" Christian...just one that IS! That you can find the truth within the words, is enough to show you know the TRUTH in the experience I shared. sad flower
