Prelude on the hymn tune 'Lavenham' composed by Geoffrey Nobes has been a popular piece on tour with the thought provoking lyrics being displayed on the screens whilst we have presented this piece of music.
There have been numerous requests for a copy of these lyrics. Here are the three verses from this hymn that we use with Geoffrey's arrangement.
We hope and pray that these will be helpful to you.
Lord, there are times when I have to ask, ‘What?’ –
times when your love is not easy to spot.
What is life’s purpose and what of me here?’
Grant me some answers, Lord, make your will clear.
Lord, there are times when I have to ask, ‘How?’ –
times when what’s preached doesn’t square with life now.
Wrestling with doubt I ask, ‘How can this be?’
Grant me some answers, Lord, help me to see.
Lord, there are times when the questions run fast –
times when I fear that my faith may not last.
Help me, support me, Lord, help me get through.
Lead me through darkness till light shines anew.
