Why must the faithful suffer so much,
Always trampled beneath evil's feet?
Why must the righteous be tortured as such,
Never seeing escape from defeat?
What can I do to bring comfor to you
When you're drowning amidst all this pain?
How can I show you that His words are true,
That the sun will shine after the rain?
Why must it hurt to care about one
Whose life has been shattered to bits?
How can you last until all this is done,
Embracing a faith that won't quit?
Will you believe true and faithful is He
Who will make all of this go away?
How long must you suffer until you can see,
And what more can I do or say?
