The Fear of God  Showbread

by Showbread
on The Fear Of God
[E]Dear God, why should I think You're [E/D#]good in a world that's falling apart?
[C#m]The flags and lies, picket signs raised high, [B]the endless enveloping dark
[E]Now here we sit, drifting further from You, two [E/D#]thousand years on their way out
[C#m]Now here I am, as I've grown to know You, still h[B]aunted by my fears and my doubts
Just a [A5]man, just a vapor, just a [B5]waste of your space
All th[E5]e good that I've done is [A5]in spite of myself
I'm not sure that I can [B5]look You in Your face when I [E5]finally set foot in
Your king[A5]dom[B5]
[E]Dear God, what went wrong? We [E/D#]hate ourselves, we hate our brother
We [C#m]so desperately want to find our way,[B5] and all You say is love one another
[A5] [B5] [E5] [A5] [B5]  
[A5]And little babies starve to death, [B5]emaciated, out of breath
[C#5]Unfaithful wives make vows untrue, [E5]husbands beat them black and blue
[A5]Junkies vomit in the streets, [B5]writhing, twitching in their skin
[C#5]Sell themselves to die some more, [E5]rotting from the outside in
[A5]Parents steal the innocence [B5]from their children, scared and shaking
[C#5]Drink away the guilt at night, [E5]brings quiet to the endless aching
[A5]And evil men boast on TV, [B5]swimming in a sea of wealth
[C#5]While misery beds honest men, [E5]and lonely people kill themselves
[A5]And everyone cries out Your name, [B5]as the world is raped by selfishness
[C#5]And no one knows the way to heaven, [E5]we only know the emptiness
[A5]And the storm it rages in my heart, [B5]and the endless empty roars in my ears
[C#5]My world is coming all apart, [E5]I've no strength left to dry my tears
[A5]And through it all I hear Your voice, [B5]breaking my heart, breaking my will
[C#5]Calms the storm inside my soul as [E5]You whisper "peace, be still..."
You [E5]place Your hands around my heart, You [A5]quiet the emptiness in me
A [C#5]king that kneels, a God made a servant, You [B5]set the captives free
You [E5]wait for me, a wretch of a man, no [A5]record of wrongs do You keep
You are [C#5]comfort when I mourn, You are strength when I am weak [B5]Jesus Christ,
the king of kings. Though we [E5]ache, though we cry, never break, never die
We [A5]sing of His great love again and again and His [C#m]love reigns forever, and
forever more. For[B]ever and ever, Amen
[E5] [A5] [C#5] [B5]
