Rend Collective: Turn my lament into an anthem

A great new song from Irish band Rend Collective a song of worship in response to terror attacks.

“We felt it was fitting to let you hear this lament we’ve written today. We can’t make the pain go away. We refuse to provide cheap, shallow answers. But hopefully this song can give us some vocabulary to bring our raw, open wounds before the wounded healer, who weeps with us in our distress. We pray that we can begin to raise a costly, honest and broken hallelujah. That is what it means to worship in Spirit and in Truth.”

Weep with me,
Lord will You weep with me?
I don’t need answers, all I need
Is to know that You care for me.
Hear my plea,
Are You even listening?
Lord I will wrestle with Your heart
But I won’t let You go.

You know I believe
Help my unbelief

(and) Yet I will praise You,
Yet I will sing of Your name.
Here in the shadows
I’ll light up an offering of praise.
What was true in the light,
Is still true in the dark.
You’re good and You’re kind
And You care for this heart.
Lord I believe,
(that) You weep with me.

Part the seas,
Lord make a way for me.
Here in the midst of my lament,
I have faith, yes I still believe
That You love me,
Your plans are to prosper me,
You’re working everything for good
Even when I can’t see. (it)

You know I believe
Help my unbelief

Yet I will praise You,
Yet I will sing of Your name.
Here in the shadows
I’ll lift up an offering of praise.
What was true in the light,
Is still true in the dark.
You’re good and You’re kind
And You care for this heart.
Lord I believe,
(that) You weep with me.

(Oh I believe that You care)
(Oh I love You Lord)
(You hear the cries of the oppressed and the broken hearted)
(Yeah Lord)

Turn my lament into a love song
(Transform me)
(and) Turn my lament into an anthem
(Oh I need You now, I need You now)
Turn my lament into a love song
(Oh raise it up, raise it up)
Turn my lament into an anthem
