Songs For Our Times #16

Michael Farren - Where Is God? (Official Audio) - YouTube

I believe music can inspire, give hope, make you cry, make you think, and a million other things. I want to start posting some music that I really think speak to the times we are in. As you know, I listen to everything so tune in every day, never know what you will get.

For our 16th song, I chose Where Is God by Michael Farren. I chose this song because there are probably a lot of people asking where God is in all this mess. He is here.

lyrics:

Where is God in tragedy?
I’ve heard it prayed, I’ve heard it screamed
With clenched up fists and gritted teeth
Tell me, where is God?

Where is God when terrors come
When all seems lost in fires and flood
And sorrows get the best of us
Tell me, where is God?

And where is God when the preachers preach
That He is all we’ll ever need?
But right now He’s nowhere to be seen
Tell me, where is God?

But could it be He’s always heard
Every single desperate word
That we have cried out in our hurt?
Tell me, could it be?

Could it be we’ve somehow missed
That He is right here in our brokenness
With beckoning heart and a healing kiss?
Tell me, could it be?

Could it be the miracle
That we’ve been pleading, begging for
Is standing right in front of us?
He still calls us flesh and bone

He’s in the whispered words of comfort
To a heart that’s crushed with grief
He’s in the feet that race to danger
When no one else will dare to be
He’s in the hands that reach to rescue
The forgotten and the least
Just show me anywhere that love’s poured out
And I’ll show you, there is God
Show me anywhere that love’s poured out
And I’ll show you, there is God

So where is God in tragedy?
Look around, it’s plain to see
He’s moving now through you and me
I tell you, there is God
