Jesus Was There
Depression creeps up on us without a warning
Before long the tears are connected to heartstring’s that are mourning
Having one wonder, when will these tears stop their flow?
Having one question where is Jesus when I need him so?
The days seem like the sun will never shine again
Having us wonder did its rays drown in our tears of no end
Having us question where has Jesus been all along?
Why hasn’t he dried these tears from things going so wrong?
Jesus was there the whole time, but we were convinced it was dark
For the sun was always shining its rays right into our hearts
He was leading us out of the shadows where our tears have been
Though we kept insisting on testing our own faith from within
Through our darkest days, hours and times of our lives
We must stand strong and reach our open arms towards the skies
There we will feel his loving touch holding us with his warm embrace
A place where tears have dried that once came down in an endless trace
