The Agony of Silence
I cry out from the depths
what is the response to my crying?
Silence, I cry out to silence
there is merely the echo of my heart
I need deliverance my God
your strength is incomprehensible
the effort expended would not weary you
I wait, yet nothing happens
Why have you forsaken me my God?
Why have you left me here in the depths?
My despair has engulfed me
my anguish has crushed me
Why do you not come down from heaven?
Why do you not deliver me from this pit?
Why am I alone here? Why am I alone here?
My cries echo in this pit, they are my only response
In the name of your Son I plead with you
come quickly to me, I cannot go on
my strength is gone, the light of life is fading
do you not care for me? Do you have no pleasure in me?
The echo of my cries cannot help, nor comfort me
I need you, King of heaven and earth
you created the heavens and the earth
you spoke and they were created
Then why am I still in this pit?
Then why am I still listening to the echoes of my cries for help?
Then why am I still hurt and confused?
Why are there no answers from you?
Answers are hidden because you are hidden
answers are absent because you are absent
my hope is in you alone but I cannot find you
peel back the heavens and answer me I pray
I can stand no longer the sound of my own pleas
I can stand it no longer, help me please
from where does my help?
From the Lord of heaven and earth
