11. Broken Praise (JOB)

Music Inspired By THE STORY
by Various Artists



 

If one more person takes my hand
And tries to say they understand
Tells me thereís a bigger plan
That Iím not meant to see
If one more person dares suggest
That I held something unconfessed
Tries to make the dots connect
From righteousness to easy street
Well I, I wonít deny
Iíve relied on some assumptions
A manís honest life entitles him to something
But who am I
To make demands
Of the God of Abraham?
And who are You that You would choose
To answer me with mercy new
How many more will wander past
To find me here among the ashes (**2nd chorus: ďTo find me sitting in this ashĒ)
Will you hold me? Will you stay?
So I can raise this broken praise to You
Who else will see my suffering
As one more opportunity
To educate; to help me see
All my flawed theology
If one more well intentioned friend
Tries to tie up my loose ends
Hoping to, with rug and broom
Sweep awkward moments from the room
But I, I canít forget
I have begged just like a madman
For my chance to die and never have to face the morning
But who am I
To make demands
Of the God of Abraham?
And who are You that You would choose
To answer me with mercy new
How many more will wander past
To find me sitting in this ash
Will you hold me? Will you stay?
So I can raise this broken praise to You
But You were the One who filled my cup
And You were the One who let it spill
So blessed be your Holy name if you never fill it up again
If this is where my story ends, just give me one more breathe to say
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Todd Smith / Nordeman/Herms
