Where Were You Lord?

Where were you dear Lord

When in suffering I arose

From a night full of crying

From life’s torturous woes

Where were you dear Lord

When my heart hurt so bad

From my life’s vain pursuits

And all the failures I’ve had

Where were you dear Lord

When in my greatest fears

My face was buried in my hands

And wet from streaming tears

Where were you dear Lord

When all my doubts arose

About my faith and hope in You

And the path of life I chose

Where were you dear Lord

When anguish filled my life

To replace the ones I loved so dearly

Who left this world of strife

Where were you dear Lord

When joy and happiness were gone

When depression and anger filled my soul

With every waking dawn

Where were you dear Lord

When betrayal beseeched my heart

When those trusted as loyal friends

Had played the devil’s part

Where were you dear Lord

When I could simply bear no more

Sacrificing the armor of God

For an armor of sin which I wore

You were hanging from a cross

For all to look and see

Your great and holy sacrifice

Made for worthless me

You were hanging from a cross

All my sorrow and sins you bore

And here I still question

Why for me, you haven’t done more

You were hanging from a cross

This clearly now I see

Sacrificing for the least of men

When you gave yourself for me.

(1 Timothy 1:15-16)

“I will tell of your name to my brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will praise you: you who fear the Lord, praise Him! All you offspring of Jacob, glorify Him, and stand in awe of Him, all you offspring of Israel! For He has not despised or abhorred the affliction of the afflicted, and He has not hidden His face from him, but has heard, when he cried to Him.”

~ Psalms 22:22-24~
