VERSE 1
Dear G.od, I fall on my knees tonight
Exhausted by the day’s long fight
It’s pulling me under, dragging me down
Shouting in vict’ry while I make no sound

I don’t want to give up the battle so fast
But my body is weak, I cannot last
Alone without Your strength in me
I know my every struggle You see

BRIDGE
I need Your strength to press on anew
I need Your courage to make it through
Rabbi, teach me what to do
‘Cause I know...

CHORUS
There’s no such thing as painless gain
Or a fight to the death without fear
I don’t want the answers to all the world’s questions
I just need to know that You’re near
Dear Father, won’t You find me here?

VERSE 2
Dear G.od, I lift Your name high yet
Although my face with tears is wet
Your healing hand is hurting me
I wait for You to set me free

BRIDGE
‘Cause I know...

CHORUS
There’s no such thing as shadowless night
Or a path through life that is clear
I don’t want the answers to all the world’s questions
I just need to know that You’re near
Dear Father, won’t You find me here?

VERSE3
Dear G.od, I praise Your name today
For You have come and made a way
Though once my heart with pain was filled
Its reckless beating You have stilled

You’ve given me strength, though mine was gone
You’ve given me hope to carry on
The sins trapped scarlet on my face
You’ve washed away by the dew of Your grace

BRIDGE
I have Your strength to press on anew
I have Your courage to make it through
Rabbi, teach me what to do
‘Cause I know...

CHORUS
There’s such a thing as guiltless Life
And a Savior who died without fear
I don’t need the answers to the world’s pressing questions
Because now I know that You’re near
Dear Father, please stay with me here
