View Lyrics
God, why have You cast us out?
Harsh the judgments You have brought.
God of mercy! Turn once more,
and our broken hearts restore.

You have torn the earth in two;
heal its wounds with grace anew.
You have granted no relief;
bitter is our cup of grief.

Let Your banners fly unfurled,
truth unveiled to all the world.
Save us, Lord! To You we cry;
answer us, before we die.

Savior, fight for us again!
Other saviors all are vain.
Yet with God we shall prevail;
He will save when foes assail.
