Redeemer Lord (John Foley)



1. You are our Father, Redeemer Lord are You.
Why must we wander, so far away from Your truth!
Open the heavens, return to our side.
You are our Father, Lord our guide.

2. Come back to Your servants now.
Give back O Lord Your light.
The pathways are parting now we choose
Yet You hide from our sight:
Rupture the heavens, come back to our lives:
Come down to Your people, Lord of Life.

My Shepherd is the Lord, there is nothing I shall need.
Fresh and green are the pastures where he'll lead.
My Shepherd is the Lord, there is nothing I shall need.
Fresh and green are the pastures where he'll lead.
3. Your world doesn't know You now,
they close their eyes to You.
O where are the wondrous deeds You do,
all for those who were true?
Sunder the heavens and come to our aid.
Lord, look how Your people stand afraid.

My Shepherd is the Lord, there is nothing I shall need.
Fresh and green are the pastures where he'll lead.
4. Where is Your answer? I cry my days to You.
A worm and no man am I, despised by all in my gloom.
Lord will You hear me, take heed of my heart?
O why must You let Your love depart?
My Shepherd is the Lord, there is nothing I shall need.
Fresh and green are the pastures where He'll lead.
