SONG: GOD WEEPS

I picked this sheet of songs up at church one day because I loved this song.  I am now trying to learn it on the piano.  Problem is I only have the top notes, no cords and no bottom line.  I am improvising the cords, sounds good to me, anyway.

poem by Shirley Erena Murray/ Tune:  SORROW by David Haas

.1. God weeps at love with-held,

     at strength misused,

     at children’s innocence abused,

     and till we change the way we love,

    God weeps.

2. God bleeds at anger’s fist,

    at trust betrayed,

    at women battered and afraid,

    and till we change the way we win,

    God bleeds.

3. God cries at hungry mouths,

    at running sores,

    at creatures dying without cause,

    and till we change the way we care,

    God cries.

4. God waits for stones to melt,

    for peace to seed,

    for hearts to hold each other’s need,

    and till we understand the Christ,

    God waits.
