The Pain and Persistence of Doubt
by Michael Card

Album: Luke - A World Turned Upside Down
by Michael Card


Verse 1: In the light of the dawn, at the dawn of the day, as the night that seemed endless was done,
In emptiness, in hopelessness, to care for a corpse, they come.
In the dim morning light, they thought that they might have caught a glimpse of a stone rolled away,
In fear, they bowed, not knowing how they could hear an angel say,

Chorus: "Why search for the living here among the dead?
Can't you see that He's simply not here?
Why can you not figure out what His words are all about?
When will you let go of the pain and persistence of doubt?"

Verse 2: In heart-pounding hope, they ran back from the tomb, to tell the impossible truth.
Did they succumb to delirium and believe unbelievable news?

Chorus: Why search for the living here among the dead?
Can't you see that He's simply not here?
Why can you not figure out what His words are all about?
When will you let go of the pain and persistence of doubt?

Verse 3: In our own world and in our own way, we live like this mystery is not true,
But if we take care and defy the despair, in our own ears the words might ring true.

Chorus: Why search for the living here among the dead?
Can't you see that He's simply not here?
Why can you not figure out what His words are all about?
When will you let go of the pain and persistence of doubt?
