14. Pierced

Adios: The Greatest Hits (Special Edition)
by Audio Adrenaline



 

Make me
Take me
Break me
I am pierced
Make me
Take me
Break me
I am pierced


I am wounded
And unworthy
I am selfish and untrue
But You are holy
You're the healer
You forgave me
And made me new
You made me new


Make me
Take me
Break me
I am pierced
Make me
Take me
Break me
I am pierced


I am wounded
And unworthy
I am selfish and untrue
But You are holy
You're the healer
You forgave me
And made me new
You made me new


Oh this love how can it be
That my God would die for me
For my sins His wounds did bleed
Jesus you were pierced for me


Make me
Take me
Break me
I am pierced
Make me
Take me
Break me
I am pierced


I am wounded
And unworthy
I am selfish and untrue
But You are holy
You're the healer
You forgave me
And made me new
You made me new


Make me
Take me
Break me
I am pierced
Make me
Take me
Break me
I am pierced


Oh I am wounded and unworthy
So unworthy, I am pierced, I am pierced

Behind the Song:
'Tyler and I wrote this song in about five minutes. It’s really a worship song that talks about being pushed to the limit as a Christian. Growing up in Haiti, I saw my parents go through a lot. They moved our family to Haiti and worked hard trying to make a difference in a third world country. And in the midst of that, my sister was diagnosed with Leukemia. There are stories like that from missionaries and God’s servants all over the world. But I think God’s people are at their strongest when they’re broken because God can use them and do incredible things when they give up and say, “I have nothing left to do – all I can do is rely on God.” Pierced is about that – about being broken, being pierced, and being used.' - Mark Stuart (Audio Adrenaline)

'Mark and I wrote this song together. It talks about being overwhelmed with the fact that God would die on the cross for us. The song is about getting lost in how huge that is; about not being able to fathom that. We recorded this song with Charlie Peacock producing it at his house. I think it surprised people because, like 'Ocean Floor,' it was a mellow song for Audio Adrenaline, but its message connected with people.” - Tyler Burkum (Audio Adrenaline)
