Recently friends of ours have had to go through something no one ever wants to experience. These words (also in song format) are dedicated to their family, and evidence the family of God grieves together. This is my attempt to share their pain, and my intent to join them in asking our Lord – “Why?”.
wanna weep an ocean.
Even still justice will remain,
hidden beyond heaven’s plain.
Time, could it travel faster,
or should it make a motion –
Yesterday hasn’t yet arrived,
and second thoughts spared us from this plight?
Oh – oh – oh I can hear your loud accusers
Oh – oh – oh blinded by their own peculiar stains
So let the sun refuse to rise!
Let the earth swallow the skies!
Let a mother’s tears run dry!
Oh – oh – oh …………………..why?
