Lyrics

Only Wounded Soldiers Serve

Verse 1:
Angels cannot reach a heart
Like a wretched human can
Glory cannot take the part
Of broken, bleeding hands

Chorus:
Through every tear and trial Lord I’ve found grace I don’t deserve
And I know that in love’s service only wounded soldiers serve.

Verse 2:
Lost alone in the dark of night
I learned to truly see and
From the shame of a prison cell
I learned to set men free.

Chorus:
Through every tear and trial Lord I’ve found grace I don’t deserve
And I know that in love’s service only wounded soldiers serve.


Bridge:
Heal me Lord. I can’t take anymore.
Heal me Lord. Heal me.

Verse 3:
I’ll keep smiling like a fool
So everyone can laugh
I’ll keep playing one more song
So everyone will dance.

Chorus:
Through every tear and trial Lord I’ve found grace I don’t deserve
And I know that in love’s service only wounded soldiers serve.
