You have banished me
From the land where I was born
Here upon a foreign shore, forsaken
I have followed you and done Thy will
Should I kneel to you?
When I rise You strike me down
Once again a little one you’ve taken
Everywhere I turn it’s darker still

What is it, Lord, that you want
And that I am not seeing?
What, in my innocent prayers,
Am I failing to say?

Never before have I questioned
The truth of your being
Never once have I dared
Never until today

All of a tremble I stand
On the edge of confusion
Who is to save me
If into the darkness I fall?

Now that I need more than ever
My God to be near me
Do you here when I call?
Are you there, after all?

You have to be there, you have to
My life I have placed in thy keep
And without you I am drifting
On a dark and rising sea

You have to be there, you have to
Without you I drown in the deep
Too far, too far from land
The waters drag me down
I reach for your hand

Who, when I die, will throw open
His arms to receive me?
Who will believe me and take me
into his embrace?

When I have gone to my rest
Will you watch me and wake me?
When my time comes at last
Will you grant me your grace?

I am so small on this earth
I am nothing without you
Daring to doubt you at all
Turns a knife in my heart

Little by little I’m losing my way
In the shadows
I am losing my hold
And the world falls apart

You have to be there, you have to
My life I have placed in thy keep
And without you I am drifting
On a dark and rising sea

You have to be there, you have to
Without you I drown in the deep
Too far, too far from land
The waters drag me down
I reach for your hand

And without you I am drifting
On a vast and rising sea
You have to be there, you have to
Without you I drown in the deep
Too far, too far from land
The waters drag me down
I reach for your hand
