Sometimes China Dolls Get Broken...


Sometimes China Dolls Get Broken


There she sits, flawless beauty on the shelf of life
Picture perfect portrait of a painted porcelain smile
Hazel eyes and perfect locks of golden, chestnut hair
People passing, they catch a glimpse and only stop to stare

But what they see, it isn’t real
Just the perfect china doll that hides the way she really feels

And, sometimes china dolls get broken
Shattered helpless on the floor
The masqueraded broken pieces can’t be hidden anymore
And will the people stop to help her
Or will they just keep passing by
'Cause broken pieces put back together are worthless in their judging eyes
Oh, sometimes china dolls get broken and in their bleeding hearts they cry…
They cry.

Painted now, upon her porcelain cheek a lonely tear
She fakes a smile, to hide her deep and darkest lonely fear
But there is One, who reaches down to hold her next to Him
Takes the pieces and lovingly He makes them whole again

And what He sees, it isn’t me,
But the perfect child of beauty He created me to be

And sometimes china dolls get broken
Shattered helpless on the floor
But, the masqueraded broken pieces
Can be cast off forevermore
'Cause there is One who dies to help us
And will not ever pass us by
Our broken pieces are heaven’s glory and beauty in the Father’s eyes
Oh, sometimes china dolls get broken but in His bleeding heart He cries...
Our cries.

So lay your pieces at His feet,
Don’t let your brokenness defeat
The HOPE that binds and offers peace
The beauty that the ashes reap

Oh, lay your china doll to sleep

 Cause, sometimes china dolls get broken
Shattered helpless on the floor
The masqueraded broken pieces
Have been cast off forevermore
And there is One who died to save us
To heal the hurt deep down inside
Our broken pieces are heaven’s glory and beauty in the Father’s eyes
Oh, sometimes china dolls get broken,
But Jesus hears His daughters cry!
