song 34: orphaned

this was written back before Moses was born, during a time when i felt really disconnected from God. i wasn't really talking to God because i knew there were things in my life that weren't good for me that He just might ask me to change if i we actually had a discussion... and frankly, i didn't want to change. how quickly we all forget that He's not preoccupied with rules the way we are, He just wants to love on us. but in a moment of grace, i picked up my guitar, heard His heart toward me (the verses), and my own heart responded by singing His promises (the chorus). He wasn't asking me to be perfect, He was asking me to let Him come close...

John 14
I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

Revelation 21
Behold, I am making all things new!

til you tire and fade
til your heart unbreaks
til then I'll be all that you need
I am your Hope of Glory

orphaned, You'll not leave me orphaned
You will come to me
You are making all things new
and i will come to You

what a heavy weight
under which you strain
cast all your cares down
I'll care for you now
I am the Way, the Life, the Truth
run to My refuge
come let Me love you
see I am making all things new

orphaned...

when will i find my faith
when will i see Your face
well there are no guarentees
everything changes
except Your love for me

orphaned...
