"And in the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying,
"Eloi! Eloi! Lama sabachthani?"
~ ~ ~
With the same bewilderment and despair He cried out as we have,
My God! Why have You forsaken me?
He knows how it feels to be met with silence in that moment
He knows how it feels to have that last shred of faith slip through your fingers
To be out of lifelines and left alone
He knew we'd need a God who "Gets It"
He knew we'd need a God who could reach us,
in the deepest valley
in the lowest pit
even at the doorway of death
So he made sure His reach would stretch that far
He's been there and beyond, He's done that and more
His reach does stretch that far
You are not out of His reach
You are not alone

"Now my soul is in agony, but what shall I say, 'Father, save me from this hour!'? No, it was for this purpose that I came to this hour."
