God, Can You Hear Me?

I try to talk to you
But it's like you're not there
My words fade away
Into empty air

(Chorus)
Can you hear me?
Can my prayer reach that far?
Do you hear one child's cry
Wherever you are?
I'm just one small voice
In a world of pain
And I'm not sure
So I'll ask again
Can you hear me?

I try to hear your voice
But you seem so far away
I know you're calling me
But I don't know what you're saying
I can't hear you

(Chorus)
I can't hear you
I'm drowning in my sin
I try to reach for you
But I'm falling down again
One still, small voice
In a world of pain
If I try hard enough
I know I can
I can hear you

Rolling like thunder
In my once dead heart
I can hear you speaking
We were never apart
I can hear you

I fell in love this piece! I have had similar experiences in my life that caused me to run from God and even not be able to hear him whispering in my ear. But i assure you, he is ALWAYS there! Always speaking to you, especially through his Word. I've found that when i can't hear him, the best thing to do is to sit, talk with (not to) with Him and to read the Bible. Overall, great job! :)

I needed to hear this. I've been making bad choices lately and I haven't even realized I need to talk to God to get forgiveness from them. Thank you so much for writing this! It's a powerful and touching song!

This is a beautiful song. I wrote a similar poem once when I was in a bad stage in my life and felt far from God. I felt that way because I was in sin, and sin is what seperates us from God, because God cannot look on sin. (Psalm 66:18) But he does answer us when we repent of our wrong doing, because He loves us so much! (John 3:16) I hope this is encouraging.
Again, beautiful song. You are a talented writer.
5 out of 5 star rating.
