When the ground beneath us trembles
The world comes crashing down
We ask “why” and have no answer
God is with us.
In darkness where I cannot see
“I am here but where are you?”
Prayers can’t come, only grief and tears
God is with me.
Everything you hold onto crumbles into dust
Where do you turn, where can you run?
There’s nothing left to stand on, nothing is left
God is with you.
