Do I recognise you Lord?
Do I recognise You Lord when times are tough, and I don’t understand?
It’s easy to do when things are good, with joy in my land.
Do I recognise You Lord as You sit in my grief with me, weeping?
So many times, I’ve truly believed that You’re sleeping.
Do I recognise You Lord when my dreams disappear, and I fall?
When I cry out in pain and build up another shield wall.
Do I recognise You Lord in the angels You send with compassion?
Or do I see you as stern, handing out love as a ration?
Do I recognise You Lord, when I wake, when I sleep, every day?
Help me to trust Your Word and believe all You say.
Do I recognise You Lord? Yes!
