A song I wrote for when we ask
Are you there??
Are you listening??
Hello God Are You there? Really listening?
Have you gone away? Is there something that you’re missing
Do you hear my cry? Do you feel my pain?
Please tell me why. Am I praying in vain?
I’m feeling lost, empty in desperation
Can’t handle the cost, can’t deal with my situation
Carry the weight, carry the burden
Don’t make me wait - oh God I’m hurting!
Take it Away.. Take it Away
Please take it away, take me away
I know your pain I too have been abandoned
Beaten and shamed, left all alone and stranded
Nailed to a tree, naked and lonely
My God, My God! Why have you forsaken Me?!
Treated like dirt, all who I love departed
I know you’re hurt, I have been brokenhearted
I know your pain, I hear your cry
To redeem you I came,to redeem you I died
Hi, this is God Yes - I am really listening
