My God of Mercies

My God, why does it have to be so hard to love You?
My God, why do I always try so hard to be where You are?

See You’re the God of every person
You’re the one who reigns in me
You are all that I could ask for
You’re my world, my everything
And so I say to You, for all You have done
You’re the God of every mountain
You’re the God of earth and sun
And I don’t know why it’s so hard
It’s so hard for me to see
That You’re my God, my God of mercy

My God, why do I always run so fast to get where You are?
My God, why does it always seem so far when You’re right here with me?

See You’re the God of every person
You’re the one who reigns in me
You are all that I could ask for
You’re my world, my everything
And so I say to You, for all You have done
You’re the God of every mountain
You’re the God of earth and sun
And I don’t know why it’s so hard
It’s so hard for me to see
That You’re my God, my God of mercy

The more I try to run, the more I’m standing still
The broken heart can’t bear the emptiness I feel
I want to take Your cup, I want to drink my fill
I know it won’t be easy, but I know that it’s Your will
My God, why does it have to be so hard to love You?
My God, why do I always try so hard to be where You are?

See You’re the God of every person
You’re the one who reigns in me
You’re the bread of life that feeds me
You’re my world, my everything
And so I say to You, for all You have done
You’re the God of every mountain
You’re the God of earth and sun
And I don’t know why it’s so hard
It’s so hard for me to see
That You’re my God, my God of mercy

My God, why does it have to be so hard to love You?
