A Sacred Lament: Psalm 22 - A Song for Good Friday

My God, my God, 
why have you abandoned me?
Why are you so far from helping me?

I cry day and night 
But You do not answer
And I find no rest

Yet, You're enthroned on the praises of Israel
Our Fathers trusted You....and You rescued them!

They cried out to You
They trusted in You
And You saved them....

So God, my God...why have You abandoned me?
Yet, I'm a worm
I'm scorned for all humanity

They pierce my hands, my feet
I can count all my bones
My heart melts like wax...

(Mi kamocha Ba'elim Adonai?
Mi kamocha e'dar hakodesh
Nora tehillot, oseh pheleh, oseh pheleh...) 

My God, My God, why have you abandoned Me?
Do not be far away, Lord
O, my strength, come rescue my soul from the sword
Save me from the Lions

For You have answered me...

Teresa Thomas Music
