Where was God when the earth was violently shaken?
Where was God when lives were innocently taken?
Where was God when the winds blew round?
Where was God when towers fell down?
Why did God let all those people die?
Why does God want to make us cry?
Why can’t God stop all those things?
Doesn’t He know all the pain it brings?
The answer you seek is hard to explain,
But you must understand God’s sovereign reign.
God’s plan is just and will always surpass
All of our expectations, from first to last.
Many things we will not understand,
But God still has us all in His hand.
The bad things that happen are often results of sin,
But it doesn’t mean God is not still deep within.
For some, it was just their time to go,
The reasons being, we may never know.
But God will use all things for good,
even when He is misunderstood.
For those still here, you should thank God too,
That he has provided protection for me and you.
It means we still have a purpose on this land;
A purpose to serve under His command.
So don’t give up when things go wrong,
Depend on God, so you’ll be strong.
There are things you simply will not see,
But all I ask is that you trust in He.
