He is Not Silent - Out of the Grey

The people said this desert never ends
We have no bread, our throats are dry,
Our heads are heavy and our feet need rest
Has He left us here to die?

And we've forgotten all His words
As if we never heard
We take our hearts and turn away

We wander through this world
In disbelief
Shake our heads at every tear
Searching endlessly
For some relief
Has He left us dying here?

We take our daily bread
And after we've been fed
We take our hearts and turn away

But He is not silent
He is not whispering
We are not quiet
We are not listening
He sends a lifeline
We keep resisting Him
He is not silent
We are not listening

Deuteronomy 30:19-20 "Now choose life, that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life."

Ah . . . We get what we need, but take it for granted, or we notice but only when we need it. I think I like this song, but I wonder if i'd like it with the music. I can't find it on youtube.
