We call your name in times of grief
Appeal, in times of war
With waring eyes we scan the skies
Too frightened to admit our lies
Too proud to feel remorse

With every aching moment here
With every desperate prayer
We draw the line and feign surprise
Too late to learn from our mistakes
To tired to even care

We need your strength when weak, when strong
You guide us straight and true
Throughout our lives, throughout all times
You never deem to compromise
Our faith is born anew.
