why the hunger and the thirstÖ
why the war and death and grief?
why the sickness with no cure
and the pain with no relief?

why the child without a home
and the outcast with no friend?
why the family without hope
and the suffering without end?

why the questions without answers
and the life that ends too soon?
whatís the purpose for this madness
godódare i question you?

when will you enter inÖ
will you ever intervene?
canít you simply lift your hand
and end this suffering?

and yet, you turn to me
a question for my earsÖ
do i not realize
i can answer my own prayers?

can i not lift my hands
to heal the hurt I seeÖ
can i not enter in?
can i not intervene?

you suffered on the cross
and bore our every pain
then gave to us the work
told usógo do the same!

and iím beginning now to see
that the answer lies with me
the things iíve left undone
the pain that iíve refused to see

the cries that iíve ignored
the lives that iíve betrayed
by turning from their eyes
by avoiding otherís pain

how can i question god?
how can i complain?
i cast on him the blame
when it is i who bear the shame



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
