And I know You feel our pain



Did You forget about us after You had flown away
Well I memorized every word You said

Still I'm so scared, I'm holding my breath
While You're up there just playing hard to get

You who live in radiance
Hear the prayers of those of us who live in skin
We have a love that's not as patient as Yours was
Still we do love now and then

Did You ever know loneliness
Did You ever know need
Do You remember just how long a night can get?
When You were barely holding on
And Your friends fall asleep
And don't see the blood that's running in Your sweat

Will those who mourn be left uncomforted
While You're up there just playing hard to get?

And I know You bore our sorrows
And I know You feel our pain
And I know it would not hurt any less
Even if it could be explained

And I know that I am only lashing out
At the One who loves me most
~Hard to Get, Rich Mullins

  1. Will those who mourn be left uncomforted...?
    Dat is het zinnetje wat me opviel. Daarom moeten wij troost geven aan hen die het nodig hebben. Het is Gods opdracht voor de gelovigen, doen wat Jezus zou doen...

  2. Moeten klinkt trouwens teveel als verplichting. Het is meer iets waartoe je gedrongen wordt door de Trooster zelf.
    Hij die weet van onze pijn...
