Song-lyrics Sunday 5/1/11


Today is also Holocaust Remembrance Day. So I decided to look for a song that covers not only the Christian faith, but the Jewish faith as well. I decided on Barlow Girl’s “Never Alone”. The song, which reads like a lament from the book of Psalms, is a cry to God when we feel like God has abandoned us. I can’t imagine anyone feeling that way more than the Jews did during the Holocaust. Some may have given up on God, but I’m sure many held onto their faith, and this is in remembrance of them.

I waited for You today
But You didn’t show
No no no
I needed You today
So where did You go?
You told me to call
Said You’d be there
And though I haven’t seen You
Are You still there?

[Chorus:]
I cried out with no reply
And I can’t feel You by my side
So I’ll hold tight to what I know
You’re here and I”m never alone

And though I cannot see You
And I can’t explain why
Such a deep, deep reassurance
You’ve placed in my life

We cannot separate
You’re part of me
And though You’re invisible
I’ll trust the unseen

[Chorus]

We cannot separate
You’re part of me
And though You’re invisible
I’ll trust the unseen

[Chorus]

Check out the acoustic version of the song, which I thought was more fitting:
