One less broken heart

There's a child
Been abandoned out on the street
Now she's waiting for someone to be her miracle

There's a wife
Somewhere halfway around the world
Begging God for a little girl she can call her own

Well, worlds collide
And colors fade
And a man and wife
Brought their little girl home today

And there's one less
One less
One less broken heart in the world tonight
Yeah, there's one less
One less
There's one less broken heart in the world tonight

We are called
To the widows and the orphans
But it's easy to ignore their silent cries
Oh, but every single time
Somebody reaches into the darkness
Makes a choice to help the helpless
They let mercy save a life

And there's one less
One less
One less broken heart in the world tonight
Yeah, there's one less
One less
Yeah, there's one less broken heart in the world tonight

Well the truth is we are all the orphans
But love has left the 99 just to find the one

So let worlds collide
Colors fade
Let your life
Be the miracle today

One less
One less
One less broken heart in the world tonight
Tonight I know there's one less
One less
One less broken heart in the world tonight

One less child without a home
One less birthday gone forgotten
One more soul rising from the bottom

One less night alone
One less child without a home
One less birthday gone forgotten
One more soul rising from the bottom

One less
One less
One less broken heart in the world tonight



When I first heard this song, my heart automatically connected with it.  I couldn't help but play it over and over again.  Although this story is a story of adoption, I can relate to it in a way.  Right now my heart is broken because I want a little one to call my own.  Also, my heart has always been for the orphans.  One day, I want to work with them.  I know that one day, this song will be my anthem where I can say that there is one less broken heart in the world tonight.  Until that day comes, I rejoice in knowing that the LORD knows my heart and has a plan for me!  Whether it be a child of my own or working in an orphanage one day, He has a plan!  Praise the LORD for his provision over my life!




One less!
