You say You are jealous
You say You are kind
But the 'jealous part' seems to win all the time
If You're so mighty, why do you break
The weak and the weary, and see what they make

You say You're forgiving
That You'll not forsake
But You punched me out when I made a mistake
I try to find beauty in the mess that You made
But You just stayed angry and never forgave

Yes, I know You are great
But is a bad God better than none?
How much more will it take to undo the damage that You have done?
'Cause the wicked and wayward continue to thrive
And the martyrs continue giving their lives
Oh, the faithful never never survive
Oh, the faithful never never survive

You're the almighty, so I am afraid
You crushed me to pieces, then stole what I made
If this hopeless delusion is a righteous man's fate
I don't know how much more I can take

Yes, I know You are great
But is a bad God better than none?
How much more will it take to undo the damage that You have done?
'Cause the wicked and wayward continue to thrive
And the martyrs continue giving their lives
Oh, the faithful never never survive
Oh, the faithful never never survive

God are You listening?
Please hear my cry
I don't really believe You're more cruel than You're kind
But I'm getting tired of repeating this line
That the faithful never survive

Yes, I know You are great
That You're a good God, and You are love
How much more can I take to undo the damage that I have done?
Please conquer these demons and the darkness inside
Shine Your light on this poor heart of mine
Maybe my faith will survive
Maybe my faith will survive
Maybe my faith will survive

You are love, You are love
