Why?!

The Mighty One, God,
The LORD summons the earth
To call upon Him
In our trouble and hurt
He speaks, the sun rises
Then sets ‘cross the sky
While His people are praising
And others ask, “Why?”

Why, why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why?

Why is this happening?
Why won’t that end?
Why am I not
Being blessed like my friend?
Why won’t things go right?
Why can’t I get a break?
Why such pain and sadness?
Why all this heartache?

Why, why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why?

Hey, what right do we have
To question His ways
Reciting His Word
And His promises claim
When we ignore His instruction
And continue in sin
Slandering others
And not worshipping Him

Forgetting our off’rings
Focused on self
Ignoring our Bible
Calling out on the shelf
Filling our nights and days
Too busy to think
That He might have a plan for us
He’s our “missing link”

Why, why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why?

And what about those
Who faithfully walk
Surrendering self
Guarding their talk
What happens when life
Is interrupted with pain
Hopes and plans shattered
Wanting to blame
Seeking an answer
Someone to explain

Why, why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why?

The Mighty One, God,
The LORD, He still reigns
His strength’s not diminished
Nor power to save
We thought He was like us
In a box with our rules
Defining His boundaries
We played the Fool
Yes, we played the Fool

Why, why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why?

Chorus:
Our Mighty Creator
We call upon You
In our days of trouble
What else can we do?
We need Your mercy
We seek Your face
We will remember
And offer out thanks (to)

Chorus:
Our Mighty Creator
We call upon You
In our days of trouble
What else can we do?
We need Your mercy
We seek Your face
We will remember
And offer out thanks

We will remember
And offer out thanks

He may not give answers
Nor tell you the reason
God is God (is God)
No matter the season
Of life, young or old
Our troubles won’t cease
But by trusting in Him
We can find inner peace

Chorus:
So, our Mighty Creator
We call upon You
In our days of trouble
What else can we do?
We need Your mercy
We seek Your face
We will remember
And offer out thanks (to)

Our Mighty Creator
We call upon You
In our days of trouble
What else can we do?
We need Your mercy
We seek Your face
We will remember
And offer out thanks

We will remember
And offer out thanks

We will remember
And offer out thanks
To the Giver of Grace

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used offensively to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems/song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website may always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
