Why?


Why do I cry O Lord?

When the pain & suffering you have seen

Felt

Personally

Done to You

By man

By us

By me…

Why do I cry O Lord?

When it’s You who should

cry for what is done

that we lie

and so we die

word by word

lie by lie

to ourselves

to our friends

to You

and you cry

but so do I

cry…

And you cry, O Lord

as we turn away

hurt by hurt

by our neighbours

by each other

by ourselves

ears shut

from your Word

hurting us

hurting me

hurting you

and you cry

but so do I

cry…

Take me in, O Lord

by your cross

by your side

by your heart

by your grace

and I cry
