12. The Fear Of God

The Fear Of God
by Showbread


dear God, why should i think you're good
in a world thatís falling apart?
the flags and lies picket signs raised high
the endless enveloping dark
and now here we sit, drifting further from you
two thousand years on their way out
and now i am here, and somehow i 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
they drink away the guilt at night, brings quiet to the endless aching
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
the storm it rages in my heart, 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 of 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
