If I could tell the world just one thing 
It would be that we're all OK 
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful 
And useless in times like these 
I won't be made useless 
I won't be 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 
And I am never broken

Poverty stole your golden shoes 
But it didn't steal your laughter 
And heartache came to visit me 
But I knew it wasn't ever after

We'll fight, 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 
And I am never broken

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 
And I am never broken

My hands are small I know 
But they're not yours, they are my own 
But they're not yours, they are my own 
And I am never broken 
We are never broken

We are God's eyes 
God's hands 
God's mind 
We are God's eyes 
God's hands 
God's heart 
We are God's eyes 
God's hands 
God's eyes 
We are God's hands 
We are God's hands
