My God Can You Hear Me At All?


One day just like any other
I awoke with a full day ahead
I didn't want to be late
So I jumped out of bed

I did my morning routine
As I always do
I grabbed all of my belongs
To the office I flew

I answered some calls
I took some notes
What was about to happen
Shook me with a mighty jolt

I ran out to see
Smoke filled the room
I can't begin to tell you
The tragedy I was a party to

I began hearing sirens
They seem to come from everywhere
This isn't just my building
This was a total nightmare

I heard people scream
As they looked all about
My God could it be for real
I began to yell out loud

I found my cellphone
Called my husband to find out
If he answered I'd be okay
He loved this Jesus they talked about

To my horror there was no answer
He never missed my calls
I fell to the floor
My God can you hear me at all

I cried to Jesus out loud
As I fell to the floor
Please God if you're there
I'm sorry, I won't sin no more

The next days and months
Were what seemed like forever
I wish I had only believed
So I leave you this letter

This day some day
Will be coming soon
Don't be left without Jesus
Know, not just assume

He says be girded up
And ready to ride
He's coming to gather his children
He's coming for his bride

Oh, what torment on this earth
If you're left and do not go
But that will be nothing
Compared to hell, the fire below

So take this moment
Ask Jesus in your heart
Know beyond a shadow of a doubt
You've really done your part

Take him with you daily
Never let a day go by
Cause that very day you do
He could split the eastern sky!
