Song inspired by Psalm 22
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 father's 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 by all humanity
They pierce my hands, my feet
I can count all my bones
My heart melts like wax...
(Traditional ancient Jewish prayer:
Mi kamocha Ba'elim Adonai?
Mi kamocha ne'dar bakodesh;
Nora tehillot, oseh pheleh)
My God, My God, why have you abandoned me?
Do not be far away Lord, O my strength
Rescue my soul from the sword,
save me from the lions
For You have answered me…
You've answered Me
