Laments


PSALM 77 ~Seth Primm
Seth shares a song of lament birthed out of Psalm 77 and walking through the process of both his family's failed adoption and his friend's ongoing struggle in a successful adoption.

I cry aloud to God
aloud to God and He will hear me
In the day of my troubled soul
I reach out and seek You, Lord
but I can't feel You

In the night of my pain
darkness falls, questions rage
Have You forsaken?
O God, have You left me all alone?

You keep my eyes from sleep
so troubled I cannot speak a word
I consider the days of old
when I felt Your love and held Your hope
Where have they gone?

In the night of my pain
faith has fled, doubts remain
Have you forsaken?
O God, have You left me all alone?

Your ways, O God
Your ways, O God, are holy
Holy

Your ways, O God
Your ways, O God, are holy
You are holy


LIGHT ME UP  ~Justin Rusinowski
Justin shares a song of lament birthed out of Psalm 13 and a midnight season of struggle and nagging discouragement.

Light up the darkness in my soul
the bitterness with hope
My heart is aching, longing for love
and the healing I've heard of

Expose the darkness of my mind
delusion with true light
My heart is sinking, searching for hope
and the freedom You hold out

Light me up with Your love
Make me shine bright in this twilight

Draw me closer
my cover's blown
Pull me closer
my wound's exposed

Only You can see and know
heal with hope

fan to flame
what's growing cold 


YOU WILL HOLD US  ~Justin Rusinowski
A song of lament birthed out of Psalm 63 and a midnight prayer of a husband for he and wife during a significant season of loss, heart issues, and depression.

God, we cry out
We need You now
We are frail

We try to believe
but it's hard to see
You are near

In hope our souls cling
like the thread
of a running seam

Will You hold us?
Will You hold on?
When our grip fails
will Your hold prevail?

You will hold us
You will hold on
When our grip fails
God, Your hold prevails
