[Parody: Cindi Lauper: Time after time]     [23 Dec 2006

[Today’s world is a bewildering cacophony of stimuli. Often our response is wrong, or we take a wrong turning and we have to ask God’s forgiveness, and obviously try to listen more carefully to His Word. I think that, when we look for God, it is He who finds us — time after time.

May this Easter be a time of blessing to you.]

Flying round my head there are thoughts, and different points of view
Just can’t get order: confusion is nothing new
Heart-ache, and doubts  just can’t leave behind;
I call out, where are  you?

Where are you?. . .

Surrounded by options, assailed by the media too
I cannot hear clearly and don’t know what I must do:
Do this? Say that? Then darkness falls, but

Your word comes shining through:

If you look, if you search, then I will find you
Time after time
If you fall, if you bleed, then I will bind you
Time after time
If you look, if you search, then I will find you
Time after time
If you fall, if you bleed, I then will bind you
Time after time

Swirling emotions; my feelings are squeezing me
Groping along, I can hardly see my way
Be still now, my soul, just listen how
His word comes shining through:

If you look, if you search, then I will find you
Time after time
If you fall, if you bleed, then I will bind you
Time after time

Temptations surround me; it’s in your name that they must flee
But can I resist them; is there enough faith in me?
Not in my strength, Lord, but in yours alone

Your word comes shining through:

If you look, if you search, then I will find you
Time after time
If you fall, if you bleed, then I will bind you
Time after time

My confidence in victory, it is yours alone
And in my surrender all  my true freedom lies
Fallen down before you, you lift up again

Your word comes shining through:

If you look, if you search, then I will find you
Time after time
If you fall, if you bleed, then I will bind you
Time after time

If you look, if you search, I will find you
Time
after time
If you fall, if you bleed, yes, then I will bind you
Time after time
Time after time
