Top 10 Christian Songs For The Broken Hearted

May 09, 2015

Being a Christian is certainly not an easy way to live.  There are many hardships, trials and sufferings that we must all endure and struggle through.  Some of these are created by other people, sometimes we create them ourselves, and still other times its life coming at your health and well-being.  Just look at the prophets of the Bible and you’ll see hard times and persecution in their writings.  Paul was in jail for much of his writing.  Stephen was the first ever recorded martyr.  And of course, Jesus was beaten, whipped, bruised, berated, laughed at, made a mockery and crucified for our sins.  Life is not easy as a Christian.  Whatever your life looks like now, I encourage you to take it all to God in prayer and also listen to some encouraging Christian music to inspire you to press on and fight the good fight.  Here are my top 10 Christian songs for the broken hearted with some encouraging lyrics for each.

10. Gold, Britt Nicole

“So don't let anybody tell you that you're not loved
And don't let anybody tell you that you're not enough
Yeah there are days that we all feel like we're messed up
But the truth is that we're all diamonds in the rough”

9. Busted Heart (Hold Onto Me), For King And Country

“Broke Your heart a thousand times
But You've never left my side
You have always been here for me”

8. After The World, Disciple

“I'm the One that you've been looking for
I'm the One that you've been waiting for
I've had My eyes on you ever since you were born
I will love you after the rain falls down
I will love you after the sun goes out
I'll have My eyes on you after the world is no more”

7. Need You Now (How Many Times), Plumb

“How many times have You heard me cry out
‘God please take this’?
How many times have You given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh I need You
God, I need You now!”

6. Blessings, Laura Story

“When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know that pain reminds this heart
That this is not, this is not our home”

5. Broken Chromosomes, Tourniquet

“Men fail me, but the Son of God saves!”

4. Praise You In This Storm, Casting Crowns

“I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth”

3. Come As You Are, Crowder

“Come out of sadness
From wherever you’ve been
Come broken hearted
Let rescue begin
Come find your mercy
Oh sinner come kneel
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal”

2. Inside Out, Hillsong United

“A thousand times I've failed
Still Your mercy remains
And should I stumble again
Still I'm caught in Your grace
Everlasting, Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending, Your glory goes beyond all fame”

1. Laying The Demon To Rest, Theocracy

Satan will leave us broken hearted after we are enticed by his evil snares.  This song is all about calling on God to lay those demons to rest.  So, knowing that being broken hearted because of sin will come at you, defeat it head on by resisting the devil, so that he will flee from you! (James 4:7) Here are the words to this amazing song!

“As I sit alone and tired, with time to spare
Temptation rears its ugly head
Born from a deceptive dream into a nightmare
It calls to me again
Testing me to see if I will break this time
Or at least how far I'll bend
I can see its glowing eyes and hear its evil cries
‘Come dance with me, my friend...’

So, the things that I want to do
I find myself not doing
But the things that I don't want to do
I fall into - Why?
Why do we struggle with the former things and
Live in our own power below our means?

War
Don't you understand this is war?
War with the principalities and powers
Things unseen that would devour us all
The spirit battles the flesh
And now my wounds are deep
And torn wide open
I'm tired and weary, hurt and broken down

Lead us not
Into temptation
But deliver us
From the evil one
Darkness falls
On my spirit again
Again temptation calls
I can hear it

As the battle rages on and on
I face the things that put my faith to the test
When fallen angels won't leave me alone
Father, come and lay the demon to rest
When my sword has broken off in my hand
I see the dark futility of the flesh
When I'm about to fall, please help me stand
Father, come and lay the demon to rest

They're on my back
I run, but I can feel their talons
Digging in my flesh
Blood trickles down upon the earth
And I grow weaker with each breath
Each time I shake one off
Another wraps its teeth around my neck
And every time, the one, the thorn is there
To tear me down again

The angels counterstrike
Their flaming swords slice through
The fallen ones
The demons reunite, attack again
The cycle has begun
Caught in the middle of this present darkness
With nowhere to run
We're in a holy war
As it is written, so shall it be done

Where there's a will, there's a way, they say
But sometimes my will seems to get in the way
So You will have to fight for me today

As the battle rages on and on
I face the things that put my faith to the test
When fallen angels won't leave me alone
Father, come and lay the demon to rest
When my sword has broken off in my hand
I see the dark futility of the flesh
When I'm about to fall, please help me stand
Father, come and lay the demon to rest”

Conclusion

These are my top ten Christian songs for the broken hearted.  God hears every single prayer so never cease to pray!  He will walk with you!  God bless!
