Desert Song

Songs of lament, which recognize our brokenness and pain, are hard to come by, but lament is a significant part of worship.  Desert Song names the desolation we often experience ("This is my prayer in the desert/When all that’s within me feels dry") and recognizes God’s enduring power and love ("My God is the God who provides").  The climax of the song, the bridge, recognizes that no matter the season we are in, God is still in control and that is reason enough to worship.  This song uses personal “I” language, which fits its more personal theme.
