broken pieces lyrics

There's an older song we used to sing at our youth camp and I can't find the words. If anyone knows them and can share them here I would appreciate it!
The chorus starts off with "Pick up the broken pieces, and bring them to the Lord"

God Bless! :)

BROKEN PIECES

I

HAVE YOU FAILED IN LIFE'S SHADOWS TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR PLAN
IS YOUR HEART HEAVY LADEN DO YOU FEAR THE LORD'S COMMAND
DO YOU FEEL THAT NO ONE LAVES YOU AND THERE'S NO USE TO TRY
JUST BRING YOUR CARES TO JESUS YOUR SOUL HE'LL SATISFY.

CHORUS

PICK UP THE BROKEN PIECES AND BRING THEM TO THE LORD
PICK UP THE BROKEN PIECES TRUST IN HIS HOLY WORD
HE WILL PUT YOU BACK TOGETHER AND MAKE YOUR LIFE COMPLETE
JUST PLACE THE BROKEN PIECES AT THE SAVIORS FEET.

II

YOU MAY FEEL THAT THERE'S NO HOPE BROKEN HEARTS JUST CANNOT MEND
THO YOUR TORN IN MANY PIECES CHRIST CAN MAKE YOU WHOLE AGAIN.
STORMS OF DOUBT BLOW ALL DIRECTIONS BUT DON'T BE AFRAID.
GOD CAN MAKE ALL CORRECTIONS HE MADE A BODY OUT OF CLAY.

this is something, what is God saying to us? I asked my husband this morning if he knew of a song that has ' pick up the broken pieces' in it, because I had it on my mind when I woke up. He said that's funny I had it on my mind a few mornings ago! Then he found this page to get the words.
HOPE IT SAYS SOMETHING TO YOU THAT YOU NEED TO HEAR! Sheila

I'm looking for an old song that had the words.....
"just an old rejected relic on the auction block,
they had decided to throw me away
the auctioneer asked who will have her?
the room grew quiet and still, ............
????then a stranger stepped forward and he said I will".......
s.s.

The lyrics above seem correct EXCEPT for the first line: Our old hymnal says

HAVE YOU FAILED IN LIFE'S BATTLES TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR PLAN
(instead of the word "shadows" it reads "Battles".)

My husband has this song in his repertoire and pulls it out every so often. It came to my mind this morning as we're in prayer for our son's marriage.

I am looking for the sheet music to the following song.. Please email me at [email]mustardseedmoments@gmail.com[/email] if you know where I can get this..

Broken Pieces
written by Ruby Kitchen & James Martin, Jr.

Verse 1
Have you failed in life's battle To accomplish your plans?
Is your heart heavy laden? Do you fear the Lord's command?
Do you feel that no one loves you And there's no use to try?
Just bring your cares to Jesus, Your soul He'll satisfy.

Chorus:
Pick up the broken pieces And bring them to the Lord;
Pick up the broken pieces, Trust in His holy Word;
He will put them back together And make your life complete.
Just place the broken pieces At the Saviour's feet!

Verse 2:
You may feel that there's no hope Broken hearts just cannot mend;
Though you're torn in many pieces, Christ can make you whole again;
Storms of doubt blow all directions, But don't you be afraid.
God can make all corrections, He made a body out of clay!
