Songs of praise to GodWhy Is True Love So Hard to Find on Earth

I
I’ve been longing to see You, God.
I don’t want to be apart
from You anymore.
You are my sovereign Creator,
but now we cannot always be together.
You endure great shame
to save corrupt man.
Who could understand?
You’ve journeyed on a road
of blood and tears,
enduring suffering for months and years.
You’ve brought down all Your love to us.
You share in the hardships of people,
yet bear solitude and abandonment.
Who could care for Your heart?
Each call and each day of expectation.
You give all You have
to gain man’s love.
Yet no one can truly bring You comfort.
Why is true love so hard
to find on earth?
II
Prostrate before You,
I’m filled with grief,
holding onto remorse and apologies.
How sorry I feel about
what I have done.
I hate that I haven’t cared
for Your heart.
All my corruptions
leave You disappointed.
How can I make up for my mistakes?
Each call and each day of expectation.
You give all You have
to gain man’s love.
Yet no one can truly bring You comfort.
Why is true love so hard
to find on earth?
Each call and each day of expectation.
You give all You have to gain man’s love.
Yet no one can truly bring You comfort.
Why is true love so hard
to find on earth?
III
The truth You express saves mankind,
leaving blazing love to the world.
What You have entrusted in me
is graven deep within my heart.
I have no other desire
than being loyal to You forever.
