…and You are silent…

The needs are great Lord

In each individual life

    The challenges insurmountable

    The needs beyond sustainable

You are our only hope

    And You are silent

    Distant

You have turned Your face

Far away from us

    And we suffer day and night

    Pain in our very souls.

 

The needs are great Lord

In our lives as human beings

    The cruel ways we treat each other

    The sheer meanness in one to another

You are our only hope

    And You are silent

    Distant

You have turned Your face

Far away from us

    And it seems You enjoy our pain

    Want our souls ripped into.

 

My needs are great Lord

I cannot fathom their depths

    Simple day-to-day life has broken me

    My heart shredded by powers that be

You are my only hope

    And You are silent

    Distant

You have turned Your face

Far away from me

    And I suffer day and night

    At Your will and allowance.

 

My sins are great Lord

But they are not unconfessed

    My punishment not deferred

    My consequences not unpaid

You have and are my only hope

    Why are You so silent?

    So distant?

What joy have You on Your face

Turned far away from me?

    What glory comes to You

    In my souls pain day and night?

        d.f.a.v. 8/11/14
