C               Dm             F             Lord, when I think You're far away  G             C              And will not hear or answer prayer,  Dm             F             When my own heart feels just the same  G              Am            As when You were not living there,  F             C              Then teach me how to doubt no more,  F             C               G              G7            To know that faith is not naive, C               Dm             Em          F             And my emotions can deceive; C               G             C              Lord, help me in my unbelief. When I cannot prove Your power And some say You are just a myth, When I'm reminded of old doubts That You still reign, that You exist, Remind me You don't owe me proof. You're not a concept I've conceived. And You are found by those who seek; Lord, Help me in my unbelief. In the face of deepest loss, Blinded by my bitter tears, Heart-broken by what might have been, A slave to things as they appear, Then whisper peace into my soul In midst of pain and piercing grief. My own perspective's incomplete. Lord, help me in my unbelief. When I suspect You've lost control Or have forsaken what You've made, When children starve both near and far And love has wilted under hate, Remind me of Your promises: A kingdom of new life and peace. Tell me to trust eternity. Lord, help me in my unbelief.
