Hear Us

"Lord, hear our cry;  Come heal our land
Breath life into these dry and thirsty souls.
Lord, hear our prayer;  Forgive our sin
And as we call on your name
Would you make this a place
For your glory to dwell.

Open the blind eyes
Unlock the deaf ears
Come to your people
As we draw near
Hear us from heaven
Touch our generation
We are your people
Crying out in desperation."

We're singing this in church this weekend.

And, yes, we presently are living in "desperation" in so many ways, personally and culturally... AND HE is the Answer, the Power, the Forever Sacrifice. Thanks for the song lyrics and the godly reminder.

We are people crying out in desperation, "so fitting to our times now."

Love, love that song! I believe it speaks directly to the heart of the Father.

This was an incredibly painful weekend. These lyrics crossed my mind several times. It is encouraging to see that they resounded with someone else as well. Thanks, Linda. Thank you so much.
