In my pain and in my grief,
I called on the name of the LORD.
Not in hope, not in gladness,
But in anger and discomfort.

In my pain and in my grief,
I cried out to the LORD.
Why do You let things like this happen,
To me, to all of us?

In my pain and in my grief,
I wept bitter tears before the LORD.
My friend was going to be taken away,
And there was nothing I could do.
In my pain and in my grief,
I said to the LORD,
You are cruel, You are mean,
That you would hurt your children so.

In my pain and in my grief,
I despised my LORD.
For He was not healing me,
He was not answering my prayer.

In my pain and in my grief,
I refused to hear the LORD,
And the words that He would say,
For I ached inside my heart.

In my pain and in my grief,
I thought about the LORD
And His blessing of a friend,
The kind of friend that is the best.

In my pain and in my grief
I rejected my LORD,
Only to recognize my selfishness,
My own need to be fulfilled.

In my pain and in my grief,
I was alone, with my LORD,
And I learned that my pride must suffer,
That He may be glorified.

In my pain and in my grief,
I heard my LORD,
And His desire for good things,
For me, for my friend.

In my pain and in my grief,
I saw the LORD,
Opening new doors and windows
To pour blessing on my companion.

In my pain and in my grief,
I knew the LORD
Was moving and changing things,
Things too large and wonderful for me.

In my pain and in my grief,
I foreknew the LORD,
He was working astonishing things
Into the future of my comrade.

In my pain and in my grief,
I knew that the LORD
Was not asking me not to feel,
But to let go.

In my pain and in my grief,
I obeyed the LORD,
Gave my friend to the wonders unbound
That God has prepared.

In my pain and in my grief,
I learned from the LORD,
While I cry and hurt,
He is healing and performing miracles.

In my pain and in my grief,
I beseeched the LORD,
Bless my friend as he follows,
Though I hurt to see him leave.

In my pain and in my grief,
I let the LORD
Be LORD in my life,
And that of my friend.
