Crystal Lewis — Why lyrics

My thoughts they overwhelm me
My mind cannot contain
The pain that is within me
Why
I long for understanding
I live to know the peace
That comes from being sure of something
My eyes are blind to your ways oh Lord
Yet I've seen you love and care, so

I rest in your knowing
Though I may not know
I take on your strength as though it were my own
Standing on the promises your word for me provides
I find therein the answer
To the question Why...

My complaint today is bitter
But sweet is your reply
My questioning still lingers though why
You know each road I travel down
My heart and Yours are one
But I just don't see the good in all this
My eyes are blind to your ways oh Lord
Yet I've seen you love and care so...

I rest in your knowing
Though I may not know
I take on your strength as though it were my own
Standing on the promises your word for me provides
I find therein the answer
To the question Why...

Through suffering and sorrow
Comes peace beyond belief
For our present set of circumstances
Serve only to remind us of the gold we can't yet see
