Our Tears Cry Out

(from Malachi)

We stand on ancient promises
We walk in ancient faith
Though we’re surrounded by voices of arrogance
Your fire lights our way

We live within this mystery
You’re our salvation song
So we return to you in obedience
To dwell within our God

[chorus] Our tears cry out and break the heavens
Holy God, let your spirit flow down
Drench our hearts in the rain of repentance
Holy God, heal our nation now

The storms rage outside
But in your presence is perfect peace
So even as our hearts cry out
We rest in you; we rest in you

So we stand in confidence
We stand in childlike faith
We simply rest within your presence
And trust you’ll guide our way
