The Fear Of God Lyrics

Dear God, why should I think You’re good in a world
that’s falling apart?
The flags and lies, picket signs raised high, the
endless enveloping dark
Now here we sit, drifting further from You, two
thousand years on their way out
Now here I am, as I’ve grown to know You, still haunted
by my fears and my doubts

Just a man, just a vapor, just a waste of your space
All the good that I’ve done is in spite of myself
I’m not sure that I can look You in Your face when I
finally set foot in Your kingdom

Dear God, what went wrong? We hate ourselves, we hate
our brother
We so desperately want to find our way, and all You say
is "love one another"

And little babies starve to death, emaciated, out of
breath
Unfaithful wives make vows untrue, husbands beat them
black and blue
Junkies vomit in the streets, writhing, twitching in
their skin
Sell themselves to die some more, rotting from the
outside in
Parents steal the innocence from their children, scared
and shaking
Drink away the guilt at night, brings quiet to the
endless aching
And evil men boast on TV, swimming in a sea of wealth
While misery beds honest men, and lonely people kill
themselves
And everyone cries out Your name, as the world is raped
by selfishness
And no one knows the way to heaven, we only know the
emptiness
And the storm it rages in my heart, and the endless
empty roars in my ears
My world is coming all apart, I’ve no strength left to
dry my tears
And through it all I hear Your voice, breaking my
heart, breaking my will
Calms the storm inside my soul as You whisper "peace,
be still..."

You place Your hands around my heart, You quiet the
emptiness in me
A king that kneels, a God made a servant, You set the
captives free
You wait for me, a wretch of a man, no record of wrongs
do You keep
You are comfort when I mourn, You are strength when I
am weak
Jesus Christ, the king of kings
Though we ache, though we cry, never break, never die
We sing of His great love again and again
And His love reigns forever, and forevermore
Forever and ever, Amen
