Meant To Be (song lyrics) 8-26-14

(lyrics set to Hymn To Hope)

Selfish, was I?
I want-ed my own way.
and wanted it - to stay, that, way,
so I could life - enjoy...

But then the skies - poured - down -
and threw me to - the, mud-dy, ground
so then I tried - to run and hide
where I could not be - found.

Again - the skies - poured - down
and threw me to the muddy ground
so there, I - stayed, and prayed  
where sin could not - destroy. 

--- (short interlude / change of key)

Selfish?
I tried to close my eyes.
No matter how I tried and tried,
I couldn't hold my cries...

Selfish, was I?  Oh, why -
I shut, so tight, my wear-y - eyes.
No matter how I tried - and tried
I could-n't - hold my cries.

The tears - poured out - of - me
My life was blurred.  I could-n't see
the words my mother spoke -
that pain was meant to be.

The tears poured out - of - me.
My heart was blurred.  I could-n't see -
the cross where Jesus died -
(fade) that love was meant to - be...
(continue fade) ...that love was meant to be...
