Where Were You?


Where were you, when the bullies pushed me down
Where were you, when I lay bleeding on the ground
Where were you, when their words cut me so deep
Where were you, when there were no more tears to weep

Where were you, with words of comfort and of peace
Where were you, with loving arms to sit beneath
Where were you, to hold my hand in all the pain
Where were you, when I was crying in my shame

Where were you, I was alone and in the dark
Where were you, separation leaves its mark
Where were you, when I could look no one in the eye
Where were you, when I was just left asking why

Where were you, to celebrate my special days
Where were you, pride just gets in the way
Where were you, to share triumph and success
Where were you, to give me guidance in the mess

Where were you, did you really just not care
Where were you, a child's life their dreams to share
Where were you, I built a wall around my heart
Where were you, for no acknowledgement of your part

Where were you, then Jesus whispered in my ear
Where were you, my child you need not fear
Where were you, I have been with you all along
Where were you, when you are weak there I am strong

Where were you, I died for love upon that cross
Where were you, I took your guilt and shame and loss
Where were you, I rose again you're now my son
Where were you, I'll never leave, forsake, I've won

(I claim artistic license for not putting in the question marks)
