Forsaken
From Matthew 27:46
Music by Andrea Davis-Griffin
Lyrics by Elmer Griffin & Andrea Davis-Griffin

1. The ground rises up and it opens for me, 

The light rushes 'round in the sky, 

How will I find my way home in the dark? 

How will I be by your side?

All I can hear is the noise of their jeering, 

All I can see is their hatred, 

All I can feel is the burden of this cross, 

What have I undertaken? 


2. Is the terror of bitter days mine alone to drink?
I'm lost to myself and my friends, 

Alone amidst my people, 

Thinking this is how it ends.

I cannot find your face in the crowd, 

I cannot feel your love at all, 

Can you not hear when I cry out loud? 

Why am I God forsaken?

Is my path so crooked?
Have I strayed too often?
Why are you so far away?
Help me, hold me, lift me up,
Catch me as I'm falling,
My God, My God,
Why have you forsaken me?
