I found God in the first place that I looked
I found God in the crannies and the nooks
I found God underneath a stone
I found God didn't even have to leave my home
I found God
I found God

I found the Bhudda sitting cross legged by the door
I found Jesus nailed and bleeding on the floor
I found the Prophet up to his neck in sand
I found God wherever I found man
I found God in a hundred different places
With a thousand different voices
And a million different faces
I found God
I found God

I found God down the smoking barrel of a gun
I found God in bones bleached white beneath the sun
I found God amongst the killers and the rapists
I found God between the proddies and the papists
I found God in temples turned to rubble
I found God on the pulpit stirring up more trouble
I found God on both sides of the war
With the bigots and the fascists
Kicking down my door
I found God
I found God

And I said
My God, my God
What have You done?
Why is this life so hard
For everyone?

And God said

I found you before it all began
I found you when the universe went bang
I found you in the cooling of the stars
I watched worlds collide
I wondered how we got this far
I found you crawling from the sea
I found you hanging with the monkeys in the trees
I found you before you found me
I found you and I set you free

Free to stand on your own feet
Free to watch the sunrise
Free to be what you can be
Free to be what you despise
Free to glory in the truth
Free to swallow your own lies
Cause I'm coursing through your bloodstream
I'm staring through your eyes
I found you
I found you

And I said
My God, my God
What have we done?
Why is this life so hard
For everyone?

    General CommentNeil McCormick (The Ghost Who Walks) claims this song came to him in a dream, after years of battling uncertainty with faith. The words of an agnostic who believes in self worth. Beautiful.
