You Are Not Alone


Was God not there
When Joseph’s own brothers
Sold him as a slave?

Was God not there
When Joseph was jailed
For having done nothing wrong?

Was God not there
That night at Gethsemane
When Jesus was betrayed, arrested?

Was God not there
That night at Calvary
When Jesus was tortured, killed?

Was God not there
When Jesus cried out
“Why hast Thou forsaken me?”

Was God not there
During all these times?
God was NOT not there.

Was God not there
When Jesus conquered death
And arose from the tomb?

Is God not there
In your current sorrow?
God is NOT not there.
