Shelter

Someone must have told you,
That there was on heaven,
When you die you are surrendered to the earth.

Someone must have told you,
How to hide your feelings,
Behind that smile that cannot hide your hurt.

Sister, are you lonely?
Are you lost within the nighttime?
Do you choose to face the storm alone?

You wonder why you’re crying in the nighttime.
You wonder why you’re dying on the inside.
Wonder why you’re searching, like a sparrow in the winter,
And your life is but a candle in the rain…

Someone must have told you,
There would be no answers,
To the things that you have failed to understand.
Someone must have told you, how to live in numbness,
Without a care for the blood upon your hands.

Brother, are you weary?
Are you weak and heavy burdened?
Do you choose to fight the war alone?

You wonder why you’re crying in the nighttime.
You wonder why you’re dying on the inside.
Wonder why you’re searching, like a sparrow in the winter,
And your life is but a candle in the rain.

Someone wants to show you,
Just how much he loves you,
And how He died to bring you back to life.
Someone wants to show you, how to leave your burdens,
And come out of the dark into the light.

He says “Children, are you searching?
Are you lost within the nighttime?
Do you choose to face the world alone?”

Cause I know why you’re crying in the nighttime.
And I know why you’re dying on the inside.
But I’ll carry your burdens, I can heal the broken-hearted.
I will be your shelter from the rain.

I know why you’re crying in the nighttime.
And I know why you’re dying on the inside.
But I’ll carry your burdens, I can heal the broken-hearted.
I will be your shelter from the rain.
I will be your shelter, from the rain.
