"Tell Me! Why Dear Lord?"
Tell me,"why!" Dear Lord! My pleas go unheard!
My heart! It wants to break!
For months, and then years! I have prayed to Thee!
Now trust, and faith, forsake!
Tell me,"why!" Dear Lord! No comfort comes through!
The pain is too much to bear!
A loved one lost! Desires crushed!
A future without hope, more despair!
Tell me,"why!" Dear Lord! It seems too late!
Buried covenants and promises passed!
I am happier now, with guilt denied!
And aches that no longer last!
Tell me,"why!" Dear Lord! That doubt is more clear!
And avoiding Thee, heals my soul!
For I have tried so hard! Lived a good life!
Yet disappointments have taken their toll!
"Oh My Son! You've been hurt, and made blind!
Thou wast close to hearing my voice!"
"Thy loss and thy happiness now fleeting!
Were a result of sin, and choice!"
"My arms have always been extended!
A broken heart! A contrite spirit will bring!"
"An eternity of kingdoms and blessings!
With endless joy! And answers that sing!"
"Repent! Cast out the Destroyer!
Be like Job! Put thy trust in Me!"
"Then heaven will pour out its blessings!
For life's trials, endured like a King!"
