    I am no prophetess
    But I see injustice
    Violence and evil
    In my own land
    I see them even
    Creep into my own
    Thoughts and I am
    A Child Of Yours
    However I have faith
    Therefore I will not
    I will not question
    Why You are silent
    While the wicked
    Succeed and prosper
    He asked the question
    For me and for us
    I shall go up on
    My guidepost
    My watchtower
    And wait for You
    For I know You
    May be silent for
    A spell but not forever
    I shall have faith for
    Because you said
    The just shall live
    By it and I live by You
    For I know even if
    You told me I would
    Not believe your power
    My faith is not yet
    Where I want it to be
    Yet I know I find
    Strength in You
    And I rejoice in being
    Able to live in Your
    Glory and Richness
    Therefore I stand here
    Silent right behind
    The prophet Habakkuk
