Album: The fear of God 
Year: 2009

Verse:
E                                   G#m
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                                                G#m
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

Pre-Chorus:
       Am                        B
Just a man, just a vapor, just a waste of your space
      G#m                       Am
All the good that I've done is in spite of myself
                        B                            G#m                    
I'm not sure that I can look You in Your face when I finally set foot in 
         Am   B
Your kingdom

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

Am B Am E B

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

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