Desert song

Bang bang bang!!

The hammer keeps banging at the bones. He tries to rub the knee but the pain cannot be touched; it is only felt.

Bang bang bang!

His eyes become watery and he lifts up his leg, hoping the pain will subside….
But this pain sometimes never listens: Bang bang bang!

I do what I know best but at some point the groans almost whet my eyes to tear. So I walk out of the room, praying he gets better.

I wish I could explain it was a friend, but no- it’s my brother in crisis.

Desert Song, Hillsong

Verse 1:
This is my prayer in the desert
And all that’s within me feels dry
This is my prayer in the hunger in me
My God is a God who provides

Verse 2:
And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved
Of more worth than gold
So refine me Lord through the flames

And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon forged against me shall remain

I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

Verse 3:
And this is my prayer in the battle
And triumph is still on it’s way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I’ll stand

All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship

Verse 4:
This is my prayer in the harvest
When favour and providence flow
I know I’m filled to be emptied again
The seed I’ve received I will sow…
