When our heart it feels the wilderness

And when our soul it greatly thirsts;

When our mind becomes a battlefield

And when we’re burdened by a curse.

When the pressure is overwhelming

And when the darkness settles in;

When there’s no hope in the distance

And when everything appears dim.

But when we cry out to the Lord

He hears our supplications;

He will never ever fail us

And displays His love and patience.

When we cry out to the Lord

We will never be disappointed,

As our shackles will be finally released

And our new life will be anointed.

When we cry out to the Lord

Our eyes will finally see,

That we’re free from spiritual blindness

To be all God wants us to be.

To cry to God with vehement tears

We repent of all our sins,

And we finally discover His grace and mercy

As we fall in love with Him.

He bottles every drop of tear

And wipes our weary eyes;

He forgives us and redeems us

And protects from the father of lies.

As we cry out to our Father

We will never be forsaken,

When like children we approach His throne

We will not be moved or shaken.

He awaits our cry from the heart

To restore and heal our soul;

He adores us more than the grains of sand

With a purity to behold.
