Hear My Cry Lyrics
(written by 38th Parallel, Tony McAnany, Nick Moroch, David Hentschel, and Brent Bourgeois)
Hear my cry, my face is numb Hear my cry, my legs won't run Hear my cry, I'm ripping at the seems Hear my cry, if only I could scream I can taste it, an aching inside I can taste it, the offspring of pride I can taste it, I'm drowning in a flood I can taste it, and it tastes like blood Chorus Hear my cry when I call your name I'd give my life to touch your flame Breathe in me, I'm free Hear my cry, I'm deep in debt Hear my cry, in deep regret Hear my cry, someone save me from me Hear my cry, and give me back sanity Chorus You have brought me to my knees And you have danced in all my dreams You have stepped through time and space And in my need you kissed my face
Song By Song Description
This is a song that expresses several of the basic elements of Christianity and the salvation experience. The first verse describes a person who is numb and feels as though they can't move. The second verse describes the notion of a person who feels as though they're losing their mind as they realize they're at the mercy of a debt they themselves cannot pay. The Chorus and bridge then are clear declarations of a person who calls out to something beyond them, to someone beyond them, who in turn meets them where they're at and heals their brokenness.
