Cry Out To Jesus

 
Lyrics:

To everyone who’s lost someone they love
Long before it was their time
You feel like the days you had were not enough
when you said goodbye

And to all of the people with burdens and pains
Keeping you back from your life
You believe that there’s nothing and there is no one
Who can make it right

There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
Love for the broken heart
There is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He’ll meet you wherever you are
Cry out to Jesus, Cry out to Jesus

For the marriage that’s struggling just to hang on
They lost all of their faith in love
They’ve done all they can to make it right again
Still it’s not enough

For the ones who can’t break the addictions and chains
You try to give up but you come back again
Just remember that you’re not alone in your shame
And your suffering

When your lonely
And it feels like the whole world is falling on you
You just reach out, you just cry out to Jesus
Cry to Jesus

To the widow who struggles with being alone
Wiping the tears from her eyes
For the children around the world without a home
Say a prayer tonight

Behind the Song:
‘We have come a long way since we first started, and have been through a lot as both individuals and as a band during the 11+ years we’ve been together. We have grown from young bachelors with hardly a care in the world into happily married ‘mature’ men with many children and responsibilities. The one thing that I have grown to realize is that not only do I have more burdens and responsibilities, but I am able to see and understand how others have the same burdens and trials. When you are younger, you know that they are there, but you can’t fully understand their impact until you are older. As a band, we have had many friends and family who have experienced significant hardships and loss over the past couple of years…so a song like this was a natural extension of what we have been going through. In each verse of Cry Out To Jesus, there are specific people in my mind… when I sing each line…they are directly connected with someone I know. My hope is that you are able to also connect personally to each verse through your own experiences. Not only do we all know these people, but we are these people. In those times of trial, I hope that we can remember we can find our strength, peace and hope when we cry out to Jesus.’ –Mac Powell (Third Day)
