Where I Belong

 

My whole life Iíve been searching

To find where I belong

A place that I can call my home

With love to make it strong

Where all the sounds inside me

Rise as one in song

Heart and soul together

In this place where I belong

 

There were times when I was angry

Times when I was lost

When pain was overwhelming

And all the wires were crossed

ĎTil a gentle voice came calling

And told me, come along

Together we would find the way

To the place where I belong

 

I followed through the shadows Ďtil I could clearly see

That I was part of something much, much bigger than just me

 

I see God when I look inside

And when I look around

I feel prayer running through me

Up to heaven from the ground

And I have faith to carry me

Throughout my whole life long

A place that I can call my own

I know where I belong

 

My whole life Iíve been searching

To find where I belong

And now I finally have a home

With love that runs so strong

Where voices of so many

Rise as one in song

Iím not alone

Inside this home

This is where I belong

Gam Ki Eylech (Psalm 23)

 

Lord I feel like Iím breaking down

And I need you by my side

You are my light, you are my guide

You lead me down the path of right

 

Gam ki elech beígay tzalmavet

Lo ira rah

 

Lo, though I walk through the valley

No, I shall not fear

Lo, though I walk through the valley

I shall not fear

Where Is God?

 

 

[Chorus:]

Where is God I wonder

When I lay me down to sleep

I know youíre in the heavens heights

And in the ocean deep

I know that you are always near

But thereís times Iím not so sure

Where is God, I wonder

In hatred, fear and war

I said where is God, I wonder

In hatred, fear and war

 

The worldís a scary place

And it would really help to know

Youíre watching over us

Over all your children, so

 

In light of all this mess

Could you please just send a sign

We sure could use a miracle

Some help from the Divine

 

[Chorus]

 

I pray for peace in every heart

In every living thing

I wish I knew what more to do

All I can do is sing

 

I may not have the answers

But at least Iíve got a prayer

It helps me to remember

That you are everywhere [every/WhereÖ]
