All Our Clouds

God hears us in our storms
     over the clapping thunder
          and the crashing waves.
God hears our cries for help.
     He hears our hearts break,
          even our stomachs ache.

God hears us in our stillness
     beneath the pattering rain
          and lapping at the shore.
God hears our silent tears.
     He hears our wincing pains,
          even our screaming brains.

In our distress God can deliver,
     in our sorrows He can answer,
          and if we would stop to listen,
He would chase all our clouds away.

Psalm 81
