Where is His grace

in the midst of these tears where does your God hide

how can you tell me "God is love"

when all around me I see pain and terror and grief


if He were really love

if He were really all powerful

if He were really all knowing


would I even have these tears


how dare you speak of love

how dare you speak of purpose


you have no heart

you have no idea


I am bereaved

what love could let this be

I am without hope

how does His purpose make this right


how could God find purpose in my pain
