Broken Ones

I heard this song a couple of months ago for the very first time and I absolutely loved it. There is a message in the lyrics. I wanted to put them on here for you to contemplate.


Maggie came home one day with a raggedy, raggedy Ann.
She said " Mama, look what I found in the neighbors garbage can."
It had a missing left arm, and a right button eye hanging by a thread
She carried it gently up to her room and laid it on her bed with her other dolls.

She loves the broken ones, the ones that need a little patching up
She sees the diamond in the rough and makes it shine like new
It really doesn't take that much, a willing heart and a tender touchIf everybody loved like she does, there'd be a lot less broken ones.

Twenty years later at a shelter on Eighteenth Avenue
A seventeen year old girl shows up all black and blue
with needle tracks in her left arm, almost too week to stand,
She says,"I'm lost an I need help", as Maggie takes her handAnd says, "Come on in!"

She loves the broken ones, the ones that need a little patching up
She sees the diamond in the rough and makes it shine like new
It really doesn't take that much, a willing heart and a tender touch
If everybody loved like she does, there'd be a lot less broken ones.


If you call her and angel, she'll be quick to say to you

She's just doing what the one who died for her would do

Love the broken ones, the ones that need a little patching up
See the diamond in the rough and make it shine like new
It really doesn't take that much, a willing heart and a tender touch
If everybody loved like He does, there'd be a lot less broken ones.



And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. ~ Matthew 25:40



To here this song click here to hear the Talley Trio singing it. It's such a beautiful song. I hope you enjoy it.
