The Absence Of God? - Poem by Denis Martindale

I cried to God in my nightmare
And when I rose from sleep,
I cried to God in solemn prayer,
For what I sow, I reap...

I cried to God in my heartache
And when I was brought low,
I cried to God, for pity's sake,
Oh, Lord, don't let me go...

I cried to God in my sadness
And darkness beyond belief,
I cried to God in my madness,
Hoping for some relief...

I cried to God in my spirit
And thought He didn't care,
I cried to God, He must hear it,
For, surely, He's everywhere...

Then I picked up the Word of God,
To read what Jesus said,
To learn of places He once trod,
The holy life He led...

And then... I learnt... He died... for me...
My sins to take away...
And so, because of Calvary,
I won't face Judgment Day...

For God works all things to the good,
Because of Jesus Christ...
Once born again, I understood,
Believe and be baptised!
