Dedicated to Scripture Memory Fellowship, from America

My tears have been my food day and night,
while they say to me all the day long,
“Where is your God?”  “Where is your God?”
(repeat)

These things I remember,
    as I pour out my soul:
how I would go with the throng
    and lead them in procession to the house of God
with glad shouts and songs of praise,
    a multitude keeping festival.

Why are you cast down, O my soul,
    and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise Him,
    praise Him my salvation

My tears have been my food day and night,
while they say to me all the day long,
“Where is your God?”  “Where is your God?”

“Where is your God?”  Psalm 42:3-5
