Love Broke Thru TobyMac

Love Broke Thru by TobyMac

I just have to put this here today. So many protests and riots have erupted over the past several years. Cops killing innocent people. Trump being elected and his dangerous policies that so many smart people warned people about but they still ignored us. TobyMac's "Love Broke Thru" has always been one with a powerful message to it, but the relevance and the timing of his video release has made the song all the more powerful. I challenge anyone to not end up in tears watching and listening to the song. I challenge anyone who sees the video to do what the man in the video did in the end. Let us all put down our differences long enough to actually listen without judging and to come together to make sure that EVERY single last citizen is taken care and not punished by harmful politics.

Here are the lyrics which you can follow along with on the video.

I was feelin' that, feelin' that breeze
Singin' like a song thru the tall oak trees
It was just another summer night
Had to be the last  thing on my mind
Yeah, I was all but lost in the moment
I was young and runnin' wide open
It was just another summer night
Had to be the last thing on my mind

When love broke thru
You found me in the darkness
Wanderin' thru the desert
I was a hopeless fool
Now I'm hopelessly devoted
My chains are broken
And it all began with You
When love broke thru
And it all began with You
When love broke thru

I did all that I could to undo me
But You love me enough to pursue me
Yeah, You drew me out of the shadows
Made me believe that I mattered, to You (You)
You were there, You heard my prayer in that broke down dusty room
It was the first time I said, "I'm Yours"
The first time I called You Lord

When love broke thru
You found me in the darkness
Wanderin' thru the desert
I was a hopeless fool
Now I'm hopelessly devoted
My chains are broken
And it all began with You
When love broke thru
And it all began with You
When love broke thru

Yeah, it was late in the summer when the northeast breeze
Sang like a song thru the oak trees
Pennsylvania
She kind of caught my soul
Which had me a little more open than closed
Walls I built
Opinions I learned
Covered in the ashes of bridges I burned
Blind to the arrow that headed to my heart
But You hit the mark

When love broke thru
You found me in the darkness
Wanderin' thru the desert
I was a hopeless fool
Now I'm hopelessly devoted
My chains are broken
And it all began with You
When love broke thru

When love broke thru
You found me in the darkness
Wanderin' thru the desert
I was a hopeless fool
Now I'm hopelessly devoted
My chains are broken
And it all began with You
When love broke thru
And it all began with You
When love broke thru

I did all that I could to undo me
But You loved me enough to pursue me
