Nicole Kidman – Be Small Enough lyrics

Oh great God
Be small enough to hear me now

There were times when I was crying
From the dark of Daniel's den
And I have asked you once or twice
If you would part the sea again
But tonight I do not need a firey pillar in the sky
Just wanna know you're gonna hold me if I start to cry

Oh great God
Be small enough to hear me now

Oh great God
Be close enough to feel you now

Oh great God
Be close to me

There have been moments when I could not face
Goliath on my own
And how could I forget we marched around our share of Jericho's
But I will not be setting out a fleece for you tonight
Just want to know that everything will be alright

Oh great God
Be close enough to feel you now

Oh praise and all the honor be
To the god of ancient mysteries
Whose every sign and wonder
Turn the pages of our history

But tonight my heart is heavy
And I cannot keep from whispering
This prayer
Are you there?

And I know you could leave writing on the wall
That's just for me
Or send wisdom while I'm sleeping
Like in Solomon's sweet dreams
But I don't need the strength of Samson
Or a chariot in the end
Just want to know that you still know
How many hairs are on my head

Oh great God

Are you small enough

Be small enough to hear me now
