Sold! Show me how No, thank you

Broken baby
Broken child 
Broken baby
Meek and mild
Don’t you worry 
Don’t you cry 
Now you're finding 
The reasons why

Fearless warrior 
So brave and strong 
Now your singing 
A brand new song 
Don’t you worry 
Don’t you cry 
A time for living 
And not to die

Broken baby 
Broken child
Broken baby 
So meek and mild
Don’t you worry 
Don’t you cry
Your God is with you
He’s by your side
Step from the shadows 
No need to hide
