Lyrics

A one-shot video featuring Audrey Assad and Jordan Hamlin

It’s enough to drive a man crazy
It’ll break a man’s faith
It’s enough to make him wonder
If he’s ever been sane

When he’s bleating for comfort
From Thy staff and Thy rod
And the heaven’s only answer
Is the silence of God

It’ll shake a man’s timbers
When he loses his heart
When he has to remember
What broke him apart

This yoke may be easy
But this burden is not
When the crying fields are frozen
By the silence of God

And if a man has got to listen
To the voices of the mob
Who are reeling in the throes
Of all the happiness they’ve got

When they tell you all their troubles
Have been nailed up to that cross
Then what about the times
When even followers get lost?

‘Cause we all get lost sometimes

There’s a statue of Jesus
On a monastery knoll
In the hills of Kentucky
All quiet and cold

And He’s kneeling in the garden
As silent as a Stone
All His friends are sleeping
And He’s weeping all alone

And the man of all sorrows
He never forgot
What sorrow is carried
By the hearts that he bought

So when the questions dissolve
Into the silence of God
The aching may remain
But the breaking does not

The aching may remain
But the breaking does not
In the holy, lonesome echo
Of the silence of God
