REMEMBERING GOD AS MEMORIAL DAY NEARS

May 21, 2008

Hello God

Words & Music by Dolly Parton

Hello, God, are you out there?
Can you hear me?
Are you listenin’ any more?
Hello, God, if we’re still on speakin’ terms,
Can you help me like before?
 

I have questioned your existence,
My resistance leaves me cold.
Can you help me go the distance?
Hello, God. Hello, hello.
 

This old world has gone to pieces,
Can we fix it? Is there time?
Hate and violence just increases,
We’re so selfish, cruel and blind.
We fight and kill each other,
In your name, defending you.
Do you love some more than others?
We’re so lost and confused.

Hello, God, are you out there?
Can you hear us?
Are you listenin’ any more?
Hello, God, if we’re still on speakin’ terms,
Can you help us like before?.
Oh, the free will you have given,
We have made a mockery of.
This is no way to be livin’.
We’re in great need of your love.
 

Hello, God.
(Hello, hello.)
Hello, God, can you grant us,
Love enough to make amends?
(Hello, God.)
Is there still a chance,
That we could start again?
 

Hello, God, we’ve learned our lesson.
Dear God, don’t let us go.
(Hello, Hello.)
More than ever,
Hello, God. Hello, hello.
Hello, God, we really need you,
We can’t make it without you.
(Hello, God.)

    Love it, love it, love it!!! Sooooo many times I have felt exactly the way this song sings, and then shake myself back to reality to “Be still and KNOW that He is God” – that He is ever with us – our strength and refuge. Love Psalm 46!
    Thank you for another wonderful post, bro!
    Love you!
