Sadness, cutting sadness

Sadness, cutting sadness
To see the people around me
Hurting so very deeply

Madness, utter madness
To look for pleasure in things
That only prove temporary

Oh why this restlessness in the soul?
Why the striking down of towering hope?
Why the weeping, wailing, endless groan?

Savages, mindless savages!
That’s what we are
As we tear apart each other

Friendship, blessed friendship!
Can we return to this
And learn to love our brother?

Oh why do we hide behind happy faces?
Why the secrecy that hinders flowing graces?
Why do we think we can just make excuses?

It’s not enough.
It’s never been enough.

If we want real life,
We must come to the light
And be exposed
For who we really are,
All broken apart.

Pieces, shattered pieces
God can pick us up
And put us back together

Faithful, ever faithful
Nothing’s greater than
The Savior and His love

Oh what grace has been given at the cross!
What blessings freely bestowed at great cost!
What part can I play to save a world that is lost?

Hopeless, desperately hopeless
You’ve called to me
To go and reach these weary souls

Savior, gentle Savior
Lead me on
As I follow You… home
