All that seems to matter


Lord today I don't feel you. 
Not your comfort
Not your presence. 
You seem so far away today.

Where are you today?
Are you here?
Are you near?

I don't have your rest.
Not your peace,
Not your assurance.
You seem so far away today.

I fall again into this place.
Where questions seem to never cease.

Where are you today?
Are you here?
Are you near?

This seems to be all that matters
here today

Show me that you are still

still 

holding the world in your hands.
protecting my mind from all its fears
encouraging my constant failing
giving more grace to cover up this iniquity

still

the God who never fails
the God who never changes
the God who never leaves

Oh sing your songs of peace over me
oh sing your songs of love over me

Where are you today?
Are you here?
Are you near?

This seems to be all that matters 
here today

Lord I want to feel you.
Yes your presence
Yes your love
I want you to seem so close again today.


When the pieces seem to shatter
To gather off the floor
And all that seems to matter
Is that
I don’t feel you anymore
No I don’t feel you anymore


I need a reason to sing
I need to know that You’re still holding
The whole world in Your hands
I need a reason to sing

When I’m overcome by fear
And I hate everything I know
If this waiting lasts forever
I’m afraid I might let go
I’m afraid I might let go


I need a reason to sing
I need to know that You’re still holding
The whole world in Your hands
I need a reason to sing

Will there be a victory
Will You sing it over me now

Your peace is the melody
You sing it over me now


I need a reason to sing
I need to know that You’re still holding
The whole world in Your hands
That is a reason to sing
