10. Friend Of A Wounded Heart

Another Time, Another Place: Timeless Christian Classics
by Avalon



 

Smile, make them think you're happy
Lie, and say that things are fine.
And hide that empty longing that you feel
Don't ever show it, just keep your heart concealed.

Why are the days so lonely?
I wonder where, where can a heart go free?
And who will dry the tears that no one sees?
There must be someone to share your silent dreams.

Caught like a leaf in the wind
Looking for a friend, where can you turn?
Whisper the words of a prayer
And you'll find Him there, arms open wide, love in His eyes.

CHORUS
Jesus, He meets you where you are.
Oh, Jesus, He heals your secret scars
All the love you're longing for is Jesus
The friend of a wounded heart.

Joy, comes like the the morning
Hope, deepens as you grow
and peace, beyond the reaches of your soul,
Comes blowing through you, for love has made you whole.

Once like a leaf in the wind
Looking for a friend, where could you turn?
You spoke the words of a prayer
And you found Him there, arms open wide, love in His eyes.

CHORUS

Originally recorded by Wayne Watson

Behind the Song:
"This song is very special to me because it was the first solo I sang at my home church. I still have the video, great memories. So many of us put up a facade, especially at church and around other Christians. This lyric reminds us that Jesus sees the real us and is still right there. He alone can make us whole and can heal any wounded heart." Melissa Greene (Avalon)
