Oh, God Oh, God
Silence never held such pain

I’ll take, I’ll take
The burden of your guilt and blame

I have watched you grow so tall
I watched you break and fall
and for all these years I’ve wondered where you are
Will our fears and prayers ever make this new?

When morning comes
Nothing else can hide your face

Oh light, Oh, light
How do we deserve this grace

When you have watched us steal and scar
and you have placed us where are
And for all these years our hearts have been through
Will these awful wounds, ever be made new

And when it’s said and done, break my heart with more of you
