How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life And you survive
At first, this song was puzzling to me. The lyrics didn’t make sense to me. I looked it up to discover that it was inspired by the true story of a woman who’s baby died when he was two months old of a heart condition. It expresses her feeling of grievance but also her faith that all things work together for good. It’s also a song that I feel evokes a feeling of the belief that it’s possible that we or others can be unfairly treated. This is a very deep belief so anything that helps to mirror and flush this belief out of hiding is very helpful indeed! I hope you find this song healing! 

Lyrics:

Two months is too little
They let him go
They had no sudden healing
To think that providence would
Take a child from his mother while she prays
Is appalling
Who told us we’d be rescued?
What has changed and why should we be saved from nightmares?
We’re asking why this happens
To us who have died to live?
It’s unfair
This is what it means to be held
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we’d be held
This hand is bitterness
We want to taste it, let the hatred numb our sorrow
The wise hands opens slowly to lilies of the valley and tomorrow
This is what it means to be held
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we’d be held
If hope is born of suffering
If this is only the beginning
Can we not wait for one hour watching for our Savior?
This is what it means to be held
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we’d be held
