When you ask for a song to sing,

but God doesn’t play with the strings,

what song would you sing?

 

When you ask for words to be written,

but He doesn’t write with your pen,

what words would be left unspoken?

 

When you ask for an image to be painted,

but He doesn’t add color to the muted,

what visions would be tainted?

 

When you ask for something,

but God doesn’t speak anything,

would you keep on praising?

 

When you ask for His presence,

but God doesn’t seem to make sense,

would you still remember His essence?

 

When you ask for an answer,

but God gives you a no,

would you still whisper

His plan is better,

this I know.
