Breaking The Law Of Love

This song is by Bruce Carroll and appears on the album Sometimes Miracles Hide (1991) and on the compilation For The Record (1997).

Lord, I'm laying down this life of contradictions
All the Sunday resolutions
And the Monday rationales
'Cause my righteousness is filthy rags and fiction
When I'm talking love and charity
And living something else

The idle talk I spread is really gossip
And the thing I call discernment
Is just judgement in disguise
And I keep myself so busy being busy
That I'm looking past the wounded people
Right before my eyes

I've been breaking the law of love
Forsaking the way of the one above
Jesus, come and make me whole
Heal my heart and keep my soul
From breaking the law of love

Lord, even though I know that I'm not worthy
I believe You came to heal us
And to make our hearts Your home
To pour Your Spirit out in broken vessels
And love through us in ways
That we could not love on our own

Keep us from breaking the law of love
Forsaking the way of the one above
Jesus, come and make me whole
Heal my heart and keep my soul
From breaking the law of love

The more I let You fill me with Your mercy
The more I'll love my neighbor
And the less I'll find myself

Breaking the law of love

Jesus, come and make me whole
Heal my heart and keep my soul
From breaking the law of...

Jesus, come and make me whole
Heal my heart and keep my soul
From breaking the law of...
