Youth Psalm by Spirit Journey Youth ,2010
Why have you given up on us?
We know we have messed up big time.
Why does everything go wrong for us?
Why don’t you help us for a change?
We want to quit, to strike out, to hate.
We’re tired of jail.
Boozing and using don’t work.
We hate being like this.
But You, O Lord keep reminding us that You are here.
You send people who don’t give up on us
You come in our dreams to say that something different is coming
You give us friends who kick our butt.
We read something that talks hard core to us.
You give us music that sings us hope.
Eternal Spirit, who comes on the wind through our trees
We bless Your Holy Name for restoring us to balance,
For giving us harmony, for bringing us back home.
