Michael Card – The Hidden Face Of God lyrics
Once there was a soul so full of shadows
That hopelessness was all that he could see
So in the storm of suffering he cried out
And clung to the God he still believed

The compassion of his friends had all forsaken
The passion of his wife had disappeared
All the looks on their faces it failed him
And the only visage left him
Was the face that he most feared

All he ever wanted,
All he could ever need
All his questions answered,
So he could still believe
To pierce the holiest shadow
And look behind the façade
To see the wordless answer
Of the hidden face of God

On and on the struggle raged between them
So that neither one would let the other go
The pleas of his praise
And the prayers of his rage
Had bound him in a battle
With the God he didn't know
Finally at last he was exhausted
Though beaten up and bloodied
He was glad
He saw the only hope that he had left was
The only hope that he had ever had

All he ever wanted,
All he could ever need
All his questions answered,
So he could still believe
To pierce the holiest shadow
And look behind the façade
To see the wordless answer
Of the hidden face of God

As he remembered all the pain
Of all that he had lost
Of all his honest, hopeless ennui
He whimpered there
Before ears had heard but
Now at last his eyes could really see

All I ever wanted,
All I could ever need
Not a single question answered,
So now I can believe
He pierced the holiest shadow
Stepped from behind the façade
Now I know the only answer is
The hidden face of God
The hidden face of God

The hidden face of God
