If I would tell you two things to remember about this beautifully poetic song, it would be: we are never broken … that means you … you are never broken … and … in the end, only kindness matters

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we’re all OK
And not to worry because worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won’t be made useless
I won’t be made idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear
My hands are small, I know
But they’re not yours, they are my own
But they’re not yours, they are my own
We are never broken
Poverty stole your golden shoes
It did not steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it was not ever after
And we will fight, but not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what’s right
‘Cause where there’s a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing
My hands are small I know
But they’re not yours, they are my own
But they’re not yours, they are my own
We are never broken
‘Cause in the end only kindness matters
In the end only kindness matters
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
My hands are small I know
But they’re not yours, they are my own
But they’re not yours, they are my own
My hands are small I know
But they’re not yours, they are my own
They are not yours, they are my own
And we are never broken
no, no, no
We are never broken
‘Cause we are, yeah
God’s eyes
God’s heart
We are God’s eyes
We are God’s hands
We are God’s heart
We are God’s hands
We Are
