A Song for Thomas, Who Doubted

from by Building Rockets

lyrics

Old Thomas he sat with his chin to his chest, and the sweat stung his eyes and the sobs shook his breast.
And the words that they’d said to him gave him no rest: he cried, “Lord, won’t You come back for me?”

Lord, won’t You come back for me?
Lord, won’t You come back for me?
Lord, won’t You come back; Lord, won’t You come back; Lord, won’t You come back for me?

And while Thomas was pondering what he’d been told, there appeared The Almighty, all lightning and gold.
And the holes in His hands were the eyes to His soul. Lord, won’t You come back for me?

Lord, won’t You come back for me?
Lord, won’t You come back for me?
Lord, won’t You come back; Lord, won’t You come back; Lord, won’t You come back for me?

Though the wound in Your side my hand hasn’t touched, and my desires and sorrows will soon crumble to dust,
Wherever I could run would never be far enough. Lord, You’re gonna come back for me.

Lord, won’t You come back for me?
Lord, won’t You come back for me?
Lord, won’t You come back; Lord, won’t You come back; Lord, won’t You come back for me?
