The Broken Heart
Words and Music by T. Dennis

Psalm 69:20
"Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness:
and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and
for comforters, but I found none."

PLEASE NOTE - ONLY THE CHORUS IS IN OUR HYMNAL

          Have you read the story of the cross,
          Where Jesus bled and died,
          Where your debt was paid by the precious blood
          That flowed from His wounded side?

            Chorus
            He died with a broken heart for you,
            He died with a broken heart;
            Oh, wondrous love! for you, for me,
            He died with a broken heart.

          Have you read how they placed the crown of thorns
          Upon His kingly brow,
          How He cried, "They know not what they do;
          O Father, forgive them now?"

            Chorus
            He died with a broken heart for you,
            He died with a broken heart;
            Oh, wondrous love! for you, for me,
            He died with a broken heart.

          Have you read how the dying thief was saved
          While hanging on the tree,
          When he looked with pleading eyes and said,
          "O Lord, remember me?"

            Chorus
            He died with a broken heart for you,
            He died with a broken heart;
            Oh, wondrous love! for you, for me,
            He died with a broken heart.

          Have you read how in anguish He cried aloud
          And died on Calvary?
          Have you ever said, "I thank Thee, Lord,
          For giving Thy life for me?"

            Chorus
            He died with a broken heart for you,
            He died with a broken heart;
            Oh, wondrous love! for you, for me,
            He died with a broken heart.
