The Fear Of God

on The Fear Of God

E                                   E/D#
Dear God, why should I think You're good in a world that's falling apart?
C#m                                           B         
The flags and lies, picket signs raised high, the endless enveloping dark
E                                               E/D#
Now here we sit, drifting further from You, two thousand years on their way out
C#m                                              B
Now here I am, as I've grown to know You, still haunted by my fears and my doubts

       A5                        B5
Just a man, just a vapor, just a waste of your space
      E5                       A5
All the good that I've done is in spite of myself
                        B5                           E5                    
I'm not sure that I can look You in Your face when I finally set foot in 
         A5    B5
Your kingdom

E                             E/D#
Dear God, what went wrong? We hate ourselves, we hate our brother 
   C#m                                 B5                                    
We so desperately want to find our way, and all You say is love one another

A5 B5 E5 A5 B5

A5                                 B5
And little babies starve to death, emaciated, out of breath
C#5                                E5
Unfaithful wives make vows untrue, husbands beat them black and blue
A5                            B5
Junkies vomit in the streets, writhing, twitching in their skin
C#5                               E5
Sell themselves to die some more, rotting from the outside in
A5                          B5
Parents steal the innocence from their children, scared and shaking
C#5                            E5
Drink away the guilt at night, brings quiet to the endless aching
A5                        B5
And evil men boast on TV, swimming in a sea of wealth
C#5                           E5
While misery beds honest men, and lonely people kill themselves
A5                                B5
And everyone cries out Your name, as the world is raped by selfishness
C#5                                 E5
And no one knows the way to heaven, we only know the emptiness
A5                                  B5
And the storm it rages in my heart, and the endless empty roars in my ears
C#5                           E5
My world is coming all apart, I've no strength left to dry my tears
A5                                    B5
And through it all I hear Your voice, breaking my heart, breaking my will
C#5                               E5
Calms the storm inside my soul as You whisper "peace, be still..."

    E5                                    A5
You place Your hands around my heart, You quiet the emptiness in me
  C#5                                         B5                      
A king that kneels, a God made a servant, You set the captives free
    E5                                 A5
You wait for me, a wretch of a man, no record of wrongs do You keep
        C#5                                                   B5
You are comfort when I mourn, You are strength when I am weak Jesus Christ, 
the king of kings. Though we ache, though we cry, never break, never die 
   A5                                             C#m               
We sing of His great love again and again and His love reigns forever, and 
forever more. Forever and ever, Amen 

E5 A5 C#5 B5
