Tell It To The Lord

Updated: Apr 7, 2023

Another one down

Can you hear them now?

Too bad, so sad

Why did she think she could do that anyhow?


And the tears may fall

While they turn away

What they refuse to see

He knows intimately, he carried it that day


And we don’t need your

patronizing

unsurprising

hollow words

And we don’t need you

to pretend

you understand

what you’ve never had to learn


So tell it to the Lord

Keep a straight face

Explain why she deserved it

Explain why she’s a disgrace

Tell it to him

I’ll pull up a chair

Tell it to the one who died to save her

If you dare


You forget, sir,

He died for us too

He died for our scars

He died for our wounds

He died for the abuses

You’ve inflicted or ignored

It was he who bore them first

So tell it to the Lord


But no, sir,

We’re not going home

Because you see, sir,

Though we limp for now we do not walk alone

So, go ahead, sir, and look the other way

Look away from his daughters

If there’s anything to say


Tell it to the Lord

Keep a straight face

Explain why she deserved it

Explain why she’s a disgrace

Tell it to him

I’ll pull up a chair

Tell it to the one who died to save her

If you dare
