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 fiery pillar in the sky, just want to 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. There have been moments when I could not face Goliath on my own, and how could I forget we've marched around our share of Jerichos. 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

All praise and all 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, be small enough to hear me now
