8. Are you listening Lord? ( Psalm 88)

The emptiness and desperation of the psalmist are clear here, we get the impression that he is full of doubt.

and yet there is a fine golden thread of faith throughout.

After all he is still praying to God!

A E A

Are you listening Lord, are you there?’ repeat

A

But I cry to you for help O Lord,

D Bm E

Yes I’m crying out to you O Lord,

A

Day and night, night and day,

D Bm

All I do is pray~

A E A

‘Are you listening Lord, are you there?’

C G

My soul is full of trouble and my life’s a living hell,

C D

And I have got no strength, I am dying.

A D

The darkness is my friend, and all my hope is gone,

G E

I’ve nowhere else to go…

A

so I cry to you for help O Lord,

D Bm E

Yes I’m crying out to you O Lord,

A

Day and night, night and day,

D Bm

All I do is pray~

A E A

‘Are you listening Lord, are you there?’

C G

And I can sink no further now, I’ve reached an all time low.

C D

The waves close over me, I am drowning.

A D

And I’m all on my own, and all my friends have gone.

G E

There’s no-one I can turn to.

A

so I cry to you for help O Lord,

D Bm E

Yes I’m crying out to you O Lord,

A

Day and night, night and day,

D Bm

All I do is pray~

A E A

‘Are you listening Lord, are you there?’
