Hard to Get - Rich Mullins Lyrics

You who live in heaven
Hear the prayers of those of us who live on earth
Who are afraid of being left by those we love
And who get hardened by the hurt
Do you remember when you lived down here
Where we all scrape
To find the faith to ask for daily bread
Did you forget about us
After you had flown away
Well I memorized every word you said
Still I'm so scared I'm holding my breath
While you're up there just playing hard to get
You who live in radiance
Hear the prayers of those of us who live in skin
We have a love that's not as patient as yours was
But still we do love now and then
Did you ever know loneliness
Did you ever know need
Do you remember just how long a night can get
When you are barely holding on and your friends fall asleep
And don't see the blood that's running in your sweat
Will those who mourn be left uncomforted
While you're up there just playing hard to get

I know you bore our sorrows
I know you feel our pain
I know that it would not hurt any less
Even if it could be explained
I know that I am only lashing out
At the one who loves me most
And after I have figured this,
Somehow all I really need to know is if

You who live in eternity
Hear the prayers of those of us who live in time
We can't see what's ahead and we cannot get free
Of what we've left behind
I'm realing from these voices
That keep screaming in my ears
All these words of shame and doubt,
Blame and regret
I can't see how you're leading me
Unless you've led me here
Where I'm lost enough to let myself be led
And so, you've been here all along I guess
It's just your ways and you are just plain hard to get.
