All this pain has come
So your will be done
Oh how I ache
And my heart does break

Why me lord
Why the pain
Mine sufferings
They do remain
A love that I, cannot feel
This grieving heart, I cannot steal

My body trembles, in my wake
Give me something, that I can take
To end this fear, to end this pain
My love is gone, and hate remains

Why me lord
Why the pain
Mine sufferings
They do remain
A love that I, cannot feel
This grieving heart, I cannot steal

Why can't someone else be blamed
So I can lash out, and soothe this pain
My thoughts are broken, my trust is gone
Courage shaken, my life is done

Why me lord
Why the pain
Mine sufferings
They do remain
A love that I, cannot feel
This grieving heart, I cannot steal

And my reality
Is not what it should be
I'll drown the sorrow
Must I wait for morrow?

Why me lord
Why the pain
Mine sufferings
They do remain
A love that I, cannot feel
This grieving heart, I cannot steal

Darkness threatens to surround me
Hatred in my heart's abounding
Terror grips my broken mind
I look for things I cannot find

Why me lord
Why the pain
Mine sufferings
They do remain
A love that I, cannot feel
This grieving heart, I cannot steal

And tears they stream, down my face
My swollen eyes, my head a daze
Life feels crumbled, around me
Incapable of love, am I to be?

Why me lord
Why the pain
Mine sufferings
They do remain
A love that I, cannot feel
This grieving heart, I cannot steal

Is this a test?
Is this a joke?
A broken mess
Please give me hope

Why me lord
Why the pain
Mine sufferings
They do remain
A love that I, cannot feel
This grieving heart, I cannot steal

I had a recollection
That reached my inner heart
That God gave me redemption
My heart pierced like a dart

Your everlasting love
Like a gracious dove
Tamed the angry beast in me
It is joy that I now see

Oh my God
A shepherd with a rod
And we the sheep for you
To be gallantly pursued

Your everlasting love
Like a gracious dove
Tamed the angry beast in me
It is joy that I now see

Holy glorious father
I've walked in my pain
But now I would rather
Follow You again

Your everlasting love
Like a gracious dove
Tamed the angry beast in me
It is joy that I now see

You are more than anything
Beyond compare
You're indescribable
And uncontainable

Your everlasting love
Like a gracious dove
Tamed the angry beast in me
It is joy that I now see

Glorious father, brilliant light
Giver of freedom, provider of life
You are the only one I need
Because of you I am set free

Your everlasting love
Like a gracious dove
Tamed the angry beast in me
It is joy that I now see
