about

A song written for my daughter, Mia to sing with me in church. She asks questions inspired by Luke 11:1-13.

lyrics

Ask
Words and Music by Dave Martin

Are you there God?
It’s me again, you see, I could really use a friend
To talk to and maybe help me understand.
Just what is going on today?
So many of us could really use some faith.
And a reminder of how we were all born with your grace.

If I ask will you answer?
If I search will you show?
When I knock will you let me in?
Oh please won't you open the door?

Are you there, God?
I’m still not sure how you allow suffering, the sick and the poor,
Maybe it’s something I’ll never understand.
But I’m told the gift you’ve sent for us,
How we’ve all been given your grace and your trust,
And all that you’ve asked of me is to give away all of my love.

If I ask will you answer?
If I search will you show?
When I knock will you let me in?
Oh please won't you open the door?

I’d like to know:
Why isn’t pink in the rainbow?
Has my life been planned?
Do we ever make you sad?
Will I see grandpa again?
What is it like in heaven?
Why can’t my dog eat chocolate?
When I pray do you really hear?
Can I get a pony for christmas?
It’s on my list every year!
Good question…

If I ask will you answer?
If I search will you show?
When I knock will you let me in?
Oh please won't you open the door?
