Whole Again

Information and LyricsListenSheet Music
“…he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted…”

Luke 4:18 KJV

I come before the throne of God
My kneeling soul is filled with wond’ring awe
As the Savior’s tender mercy
heals the wounds of all my sin
I praise the love
that makes me whole again

I come in hope; I come in faith
To feel the touch of His redeeming grace
As I offer him my broken heart
He heals the hurt within
And I praise the love
that makes me whole again

Alleluia! my healing spirit cries
As He reaches out his hand to bid me rise
Alleluia! praise the Healer of all men
Who makes me more than what I was
And sees beyond what I am

And when I fall He lifts me up
Restores my soul, removes my bitter cup
For He heals my every heartache,
and He carries all my pain
And I praise the love
that makes me whole again

    I love the changes that you made to this song. I feel it love with it years again, but I also love, love the original being a little slower . I wish there was an option to choose that accompaniment and the new one depending on what we want. This is one of my favorites from you, so I’m a little stuck on the original, so that’s why I’m saying that.


    Do you have an easier accompaniment for this song? I have been asked to play for a man in our ward and I am just not comfortable with this version. Please let me know ASAP. Thank you!


    I love “Whole Again” but I also would like to have the sheet music in the key in which James sings it. I plan on singing it in church with both organ and piano. The organ is a hybrid and can transpose electronically but not so much with our Steinway. lol
    The congregation is amazingly moved whenever we “reveal” one of your pieces. It’s truly a joy to sing inspired scripture with melodies written by someone who knows how a singer actually sings! Thanks for providing the music community with such lovely music. – John


    I really wanted to sing and record this song for family but I can’t find the sheet music that matches the accompaniment pieces in the high-quality section and when I listen to the tracks they will only play through all the way one time and then will stop at random places in the song and repeat themselves. When you list an accompaniment track would you please include the link for the sheet music that goes with it?


    Aww I miss the high voice extended accompaniment track since you changed the web site. =-(


    I am listening right now and love it!
    Thank you.
