Lyrics

PSALM
(Rick Lugg)

On an endless summer morning
The fields were growing long
The narrow gate was open
But no one felt that strong
All my rooms were cold and empty
And I was feeling so alone
I kneeled and stood and kneeled again
I just could not go on

How long, O Lord, how long?
How long, O Lord, how long?
How many more days
Until I find my way?
How long, O Lord, how long?

Grandma's lying dying
From the cancer and the fear
She wakes up every morning
And says "Am I still here?"
She prays for God to take her
In the quiet of the night
She strangles on the words she speaks
She's lost the strength to fight

How long, O Lord, how long?
How long, O Lord, how long?
How many more nights
Will I fight the light?
How long, O Lord, how long?

Young man died so sudden
The said Legionnaire's Disease
Slashed him at his strongest
Like a chainsaw through a tree
He went to work on Monday
But you know what they say
We never know the hour
Never know the day

How long, O Lord, how long?
How long, O Lord, how long?
How much more time
Can I count as mine?
How long, O Lord, how long?
How long, O Lord, how long?

..."Weeping shall endure for the night
But joy cometh in the morning"...
[Psalm 30.5]
