    Você vai antes que eu saiba
    Que você mesmo foi para ganhar minha guerra
    Você volta com a cabeça do meu inimigo
    Você volta e você chama isso de vitória

    Você vai antes que eu saiba
    Que você mesmo foi para ganhar minha guerra
    Seu amor se torna minha maior defesa
    Isso me leva da região selvagem seca

    E tudo o que fiz foi louvor
    E tudo o que fiz foi adoração
    E tudo o que fiz foi curvar-se
    E tudo o que fiz foi ficar quieto

    E aleluia, você me salvou
    Muito melhor o seu caminho
    E Aleluia, grande defensor
    Muito melhor assim

    Você sabe antes de eu fazer
    Onde meu coração pode procurar encontrar sua verdade
    Sua misericórdia é a sombra em que estou morando
    Você restaura minha fé e espero novamente

    E tudo o que fiz foi louvor
    E tudo o que fiz foi adoração
    E tudo o que fiz foi curvar-se
    E tudo o que fiz foi ficar quieto

    Muito melhor o seu caminho
    E Aleluia, grande defensor
    Muito melhor assim
    E aleluia, você me salvou
    Muito melhor o seu caminho
    E Aleluia, grande defensor
    Muito melhor assim

    Quando eu pensei que eu me perdi
    Você sabia onde eu me deixei
    Você me reintroduziu no seu amor
    E você pegou todas as minhas peças
    Volte a colocar-me
    Você é o defensor do meu coração
    E quando eu pensei que eu me perdi
    Você sabia onde eu me deixei
    Você me reintroduziu no seu amor

    Isso acontece toda vez que
    Toda vez que eu me desmorono
    Você pega as peças e as faz lindas
    Toda vez, todas as vezes
    Isso sempre acontece, sempre acontece
    Toda vez
    Não apenas uma vez, não apenas algumas vezes
    Toda vez, todas as vezes
    Toda vez

  3. Hey guys I could use some prayer. I feel like I have lost my relationship with Jesus, I know it's not about works but I just feel like I am so far from Him and His presence, I struggle to read my Bible, I feel I only pray if I'm in trouble and I don't feel like I am doing anything at all for the kingdom.

  4. This song is really beautiful! I heard it in Portuguese this morning and I am here now…
    God is our great defender. We are His kids and He loves us so much.

    Greetings from Brazil!

  5. Abbie has got an amazing voice and a genuine heart of worships that everyone wants to see in a worship leader!

    Watching from South Africa and I can't stop!

  6. Beautiful! What a control in singing, and the sync with the music team, Lyrics are Just like what i would say. well wrote! All Glory to the Defender of our Heart!!

  7. I always feel like crying whenever I listen to this. Life can get very overwhelming at times but God alone keeps me alive and picks up all my pieces. This song is seriously so beautiful and powerful.

  13. I JUST LOVE THIS SONG AND CAN'T GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD – YOU HAVE SAVED ME SO MUCH BETTER YOUR WAY!!! THANK YOU JESUS!

  14. Tears . I feel my pain and inner exhaustion. He is the God who is close to the broken. I am not usually emotionally aware of my brokenness. It’s more of an intellectual understanding. Crumbling into pieces and it’s safe and it’s okay. I know it’s always safe to fall apart and be okay with Jesus. Oh Holy Spirit of God. Praise your Holy Name.

  15. Listening to this song from NYC, NY.
    Heard this song this past Saturday during a prayer night and was filled with an overflowing sense of peace. As someone who moved out-of-state recently for my first, full-time job, it hasn’t been easy keeping God at the top of my priorities. Living in such a loud and active city has made it even harder for me to be still and acknowledge my Maker. Being so far away from friends and family, it often feels like I’m in this fight alone and anxiety seems minutes away from drowning me. But, as I continue my walk with my Savior, I feel hopeful that I will one day be able to say with conviction that I truly entrust the entirety of my being to Abba Father.

    Thank you so much for this song and may we continue to praise and give glory to God! Fight the good fight, everyone!

    You knew where I left me

    You reintroduced me to Your love

    And You picked up all my pieces

    Put me back together

    You are the defender of my heart

    And when I thought I lost me

    You knew where I left me

    You reintroduced me to Your love

    And You picked up all my pieces

    Put me back together

    You are the defender of my heart

    [Spontaneous]

    Every time

    This happens every time

    Every time I fall apart

    You pick up the pieces and make them beautiful

    Every time, every time

    This always happens, always happens

    Every time

    Not just one time, not just a few times

    Every time, every time

    Every time

    [Bridge]

    When I thought I lost me

    You knew where I left me

    You reintroduced me to Your love

    And You picked up all my pieces

    Put me back together

    You are the defender of my heart

    And when I thought I lost me

    You knew where I left me

    You reintroduced me to Your love

    Every time, You picked up all my pieces

    Put me back together

    You are the defender of my heart

    'Cause when I thought I lost me

    You knew where I left me

    You reintroduced me to Your love

    You picked up all my pieces

    Put me back together

    You are the defender of my heart

    [Chorus]

    And hallelujah, You have saved me

    So much better this way

    So much better

    And hallelujah, Great Defender

    So much better this way

    And hallelujah, You have saved me

    So much better this way

    And hallelujah, Great Defender

    So much better Your way

  20. You know this song kinda of saved me too, I slipped away from the faith, blamed everyone for my failings even the church. I decided to go back to church to see if I could get that fire back and our worship team sang this song, first time I heard it this year 2019 and it brought me back. The Lord knows what we need at the right time
