Wrapped in the arms of love
I always read about.
That's where I want to be.
But I don't think I've ever felt
Oh, I know You're here,
Wherever two or more are gathered,
So why do I feel so alone sometimes?
Like no one understands me?
I know You do, they tell us
every week in church.
Jesus loves me, right?
So why have bad things happened?
I know I'd never want
something terrible to happen
to someone I love.
So why do You let things happen?
You can stop it, so why don't You?
Why isn't the world a happy place?
Yes, I know, choices.
What a concept
Even though You could prevent people from doing
stupid things, You don't.
Even though You could prevent
horrible tragedies, You don't.
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
So why don't I feel stronger?
Why don't I just blow off the grief?
Why isn't it water off a duck's back?
It hurts from my burdens.
My heart aches with unshed tears.
And I need a hug – an embrace
in my daddy's arms.
Where nothing can hurt me,
though I'm wounded.
Show me You do love me.
in Your arms of love.
