bless the Lord.Mature

i don't understand
why i am here 
all i've experienced as of late 
is pain and more heartache

but bless the Lord,
his goodness will follow me
he loves me, he will never forsake me
bless the Lord.

violence, heartache, death it's all apart of my life
the pain i hold in my heart continually
the lies i say to make it through the day
where is the hope now?

but bless the Lord
his goodness will follow me
he loves me, he will never forsake me
bless the Lord.

the anger that i wrap myself up with
the condemnation and guilt i feel safe in
the pain i am altogether used to
apathy to the pain i feel

but bless the Lord
his goodness will follow me
he loves me, he will never forsake me
bless the Lord.

i am like Job, questioning his goodness
if he is truly just, why does an innocent girl live in such pain?
i cry out to him for answers, my pleadings cover all sound
but naught a thing i hear above my own thoughts

but bless the Lord
his goodness will follow me
he loves me, he will never forsake me
bless the Lord.

gritting my teeth i write out he loves me
my heart rebels at blessing the Lord
i feel abandon and long to wither
i long to meet my God face to face and understand the pain

but bless the Lord
his goodness will follow me
he loves me, he will never forsake me
bless the Lord.

turn my bitter thankfulness into heartfelt praise Jesus
wrap your arms around my cold heart
you know my thoughts, you know the plan for my life
so i'll keep on trusting you, even when it hurts

Bless the Lord
His goodness will follow me
He loves me, he will never forsake me
Bless the Lord. 

The End
