Save Us!

Written By David E. Young , 1997
Verse 1:
(Child)
It’s so dark.
Is there a hope?
How long must we
Stay and cope?

Is God real,
Or is He fake?
Did Yahweh
The whole sky make?

Then where is He today?
Why can’t He hear me pray?

Verse 2:
(Choir joins in)
Oh God of Jacob,
God of Job,
Where’s the Savior
You foretold?

(Child)
My parents tell me
Of your grace.
Why can I not
See your face?

(Choir joins in)
Where are you today?
Please turn and hear me pray!

Refrain:
(Choir)
Save us!  Save us oh God!
Deliver us!  Send forth thy rod!
You promised us a sign;
A savior which is thine.
Please save us!  Save us Yahweh!

Verse 3:
(Man)

Why can’t I be happy?
I’m good as any man.
Yet I still feel empty
As a barren land.

I need you Lord.
Where can I find you, how?
I know I could make it,
If you would allow.


Verse 4:
(Woman)
I have a broken heart,
And hope is nowhere near.
I really hope His promise
Of coming light is near.

I try and try and try
So hard, it seems to me,
That I should just give up.
I hope He comes for me.

(Choir Repeat Refrain)

Verse 5:

(Simeon)
The time is now.
Jehovah told me.
I will not die
Before I see thee.

Our deliverer,
Our only hope,
I’ll see the light;
Salvation’s rope.

You’re making a new way
For a bright and greater day!

(Choir Repeat Refrain)
