david m. bailey: Music & Lyrics

Already

(David M. Bailey)
david m. bailey
from the top of the ladder to the end of the rope,
in the fullness of joy, in the absence of hope,
when you're lost in the crowd, when you feel all alone,
when you're close to the fire, when you're far from your home;
wherever you are, whatever your care, God is already there.

When the river is dry, when the sun doesn't shine,
when the shadows are long, when you're all outta time,
when the people you love you cannot comprehend,
when you want to be real but can only pretend;
wherever you are, whatever your care, God is already there.

when the road makes a turn, when the detour is long, when the war has begun, when the border is drawn,
when you're dying to sing but you can't hear the song,
when you're left becomes right and your right becomes wrong, when you feel you've arrived but not sure you belong,
when you're true when you're blue, when you’re weak when you’re strong;

wherever you are, whatever your care, God is already there.
