Where Are You Now

WHERE ARE YOU NOW that I'm crying again?
Where are you now that I'm hurting?
Where are you now that I need you, my friend?
Where are you now that I'm searching?

Why do You seem to be so far away?
Why is it always so quiet?
Why does it seem that You're distant today?
Why am I trying to hide it?

I am broken, worn out, barren
You are Sovereign, but I don't understand

When will it all be the way that You dream?
How should I feel in the meantime?
When will my faith be a burden no more?
When will I not have to hope anymore?

How long, waiting, hope seems fading
Tell me, answer, I don't understand

You say You'll come down and bind up our wounds
You say You bottle our tears
You say You'll mend our broken hearts too
You say Your love can eradicate fears

I've heard all the answers and hollow advice
I know what they're all going to say
I'm tired of cliché's and I'm tired of the lies
I need to feel You today

I am broken, worn out, barren
You are Sovereign
