thank you Lord for another birthday...

Pin It
Sixteen finds me blowing out candles and making wishes
And all around me is everyone but the one I'm wishing for
And he sent me flowers and gift-wrapped excuses
From a daddy whose daughter wants to see him again

And I know, I know, it's just another birthday
But I guess I thought this would be the one
When he would call me, see me, hold me and free me
But it's just another birthday and I'm not fine
I'm not fine

Jesus, can You hear me
Come and heal my brokenness
Put the pieces back together
And be a Father to the fatherless
It's so amazing looking back at all God's brought us through
You are my happy birthday
And you were born to break the chains
Now I know, I know, it's not just another birthday
‘Cause I'm here, he's here and look how far we've come
Since you've called me, saw me, held me and freed me
Thank you, Lord, for another birthday
And we'll be fine
We'll be fine
