Father forgive me
My child tell me your needs
Well, you see Lord; Iíve forgotten how to believe
This isnít like you, youíve always had faith.
I know Lord but lately that faithís been misplaced.
Have I not given you all that you need?
Yes Father, yet still Iím consumed by greed.
Lately it seems as though you donít do enoughÖ
And Iíve felt so alone when my lifeís hit a rut.
My child but that simply isnít true
Each moment of pain Iíve been there for you
I try to reach out, yet you do not take my hand
Instead you withdraw and question my plan.
You asked me for love and I gave you family
You asked for tranquility and I gave faith to believe
I delivered good health upon your request
You asked for a miracle, with two children you are now blessed.
Iíve heard your deepest fears and have tried to lay rest
Even while you disobeyed me and mocked me with jest
Iíve held your hand through each darken trial
Patiently Iíve loved you, even now while youíre in denial.
Iíve sat here and watched this darkness creep into your soul
Though youíve tried to leave me, I have yet to let go.
I understand your doubts child, know that it is okay.
After all it is my job to herd the lambs that go astray.
Lord how do you do it? How do you love so strong?
How can you still care even after all of my wrongs?
Your patience is unwavering, your faith so trueÖ
Simple, though at times you donít believe in me, I always believe in you.
