Lord, Help Me In My Unbelief

Lord, when I think You're far away
And will not hear or answer prayer,
When my own heart feels just the same
As when You were not living there,
Then teach me how to doubt no more,
To know that faith is not naive,
And my emotions can deceive;
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.
