My Lament, O God

I hurt, O God

Why, O God

My body cannot rest

Torn by pain, my mind

Wandering, wondering

Where are You, Lord

You are Father

You are Mother

Why cannot I find You, loving God

My brain suffers Your abandon

In my sleep I see Your children

Torn from loving parents

Why cannot I see You, O Lord

I see the refugee

Suffering in his cell

Where are you, Lord

My eyes are burnt

By the homeless mother

Begging for a few coins

To feed her children

To feed Your children

To comfort Your children

Why cannot I see you, Holy Spirit

Why cannot I see you

As I suffer in pain

Why cannot I see you

As my mind pictures

Your poor children

Why cannot I see you

You are my savior, loving Jesus

You suffered for us all

But we suffer

But we hurt

But we sorrow

Am I blinded by my birth, O Lord

That I cannot see goodness

In these faces that You created

Why cannot I see You in these faces

That You created

I suffer with my people, Dear God

I suffer with Your children, Loving Father

Why cannot I see you

Why cannot I see you
