Naive

past-the-edges-chris-rice.jpgThis is certainly not a new song by Chris Rice. It’s from his “Past the Edges” CD, but I just HEARD it (beyond music and words) for the first time. Maybe I needed to hear it today. Maybe someone else does too? I felt led to post it for that very reason. (emphasis mine)

Naive” by Chris Rice

How long until You defend Your name and set the record right
And how far will You allow the human race to run and hide
And how much can You tolerate our weaknesses
Before You step into our sky blue and say “That’s quite enough!”

Am I naive to want a remedy for every bitter heart
Can I believe You hold an exclamation point for every question mark
And can I leave the timing of this universe in bigger hands
And may I be so bold to ask You to please hurry?

I hear that a God who’s good would never let the evil run so long
But I say it’s because You’re good You’re giving us more time, yeah
‘Cause I believe that You love to show us mercy
But when will You step into our sky blue
And say “That’s quite enough, and your time is up!”

Am I naive to want a remedy for every bitter heart
Can I believe You hold an exclamation point for every question mark
And can I leave the timing of this universe in bigger hands
And may I be so bold to ask You to please hurry?

Am I naive…
Can I believe…
And can I leave…in bigger hands
And may I be so bold to ask You, to ask You, to ask You

How long?
