While We Lament

Cry, cry, cry,
while we ask why.
Blaming the Lord
for what’s in store.
Yet Jeremiah reminds
of the truth he finds
that despite we transgress,
we are blessed
that God does not consume us.
Instead, He sent Jesus.
His compassions fail not.
He’s a great and faithful God.
Every morning He renews
with His good news.
So why, why, why
do we still cry?
Do we not yet see
His love and mercy?
