Hard to Get

I hate to take two consecutive posts and just quote songs, but I pulled out this old CD yesterday and was reminded of one of my favorite songs. I have a lot of other things I want to write about right now, but I just wanted to share these great lyrics. I especially love the third verse.

"Hard to Get" by Rich Mullins

Do you who live in heaven hear the prayers of those of us who live here on earth?
We are afraid of being left by those we love, and we're hardened in the hurt.
Do you remember what its like down here where we all scrape, just to find the strength to ask for daily bread?
Did you forget about us, after you had gone away, well I memorized every word you said, still I'm so scared I'm holding my breath. And you're up there just playing hard to get.

Do you who live in radiance hear the prayers of those of us who live in skin?
We have a love that's not as patient as yours was, but we do love now and then.
Did you ever know loneliness, did you ever know need?
Do you remember just how long the night can get? When you are barely holding on and your friends fall asleep, do you see the blood that's running in your sweat? Will those who mourn be left uncomforted? While you're up there playing hard to get.

I know you bore our sorrows, and I know you feel our pain. And I know it would not hurt any less, even if it could be explained. And I know that I am only lashing out, at the One who loves me most. And after I have figured this somehow, all I really need to know...

Is if You who live in eternity hear the prayers of those of us who live in time. We can't see what's ahead and we can't get break free from what we leave behind. I'm reeling from these voices that keep screaming in my ears. With words of blame, doubt, shame, and regret. I can't see where you're leading me unless you've led me here, where I'm lost enough to let myself be led. So you've been here all along I guess. It's Your ways and You are just plain hard to get.

I'll encourage your song posting with another song:
Words That You Say, by Something Like Silas.
~
Speak in this close communion
Though this hour seems timeless still
I wait for your words that bid me come

Breathe in me, Holy Spirit
The will when my tomorrow comes
To follow when this song is gone

So I await the words that you say
I open my life
I am longing just to hear these words
That you say, that you say

Shape me with words of wisdom
Free my torn heart from this world
Renew my mind and form my will

Teach me to wholly offer
More than words that I can sing
So I become the song I bring

So I await the words that you say
I open my life
I am longing just to hear these words
That you say, that you say

~
