The Gift of Music for Parents With Broken Hearts

Do you feel weary in your parenting journey? Are you exhausted and depleted? Tired of the rollercoaster ride, the chaos, thankfulthe crises, the pain and loss. Are you feeling worn out with nothing left to keep you going? Do you wonder when this will be over?
I heard a powerful song a few days ago called “Worn” that speaks to these feelings. I’d never heard it before and it was just what I needed. The music and the words both spoke to my heart in ways I cannot describe. Profoundly. Deeply. Beautifully. It’s raw and honest and expresses what I believe many brokenhearted parents feel. I had to share it with you.
It’s written and performed by Tenth Avenue North, a group whose music I like a lot. I’ve included the link to a YouTube video so you can listen to it. I hope it will be meaningful for you, too. I see it like a hopeful lament, and God is okay with that. If it’s difficult for you to express your sadness, maybe listening to it can help.
 
  Worn

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
That’s frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Cause I’m wornI know I need to lift my eyes up
But I’m too weak
Life just won’t let up
And I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have leftLet me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
That’s frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Cause I’m worn

My prayers are wearing thin
Yeah, I’m worn
Even before the day begins
Yeah, I’m worn
I’ve lost my will to fight
I’m worn
So, heaven come and flood my eyes

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
That’s frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Cause all that’s dead inside will be reborn

Though I’m worn
Yeah, I’m worn

  1. I’d not hear this either. What a testament to the reality of living in a dark world but the hope that God has that doesn’t disappoint. Even when it looks bleak. Thanks for the reminder of an everlasting hope that’s as sure as the existence of God Himself.
