Where Were You - Ghost Ship

Job 38-42 is perhaps the most powerful rebuke in all the Scripture.  Read it, and shake.  Then, listen; Ghost Ship put Scripture to song.  

I said, 
"God, I do not understand this world
Everything is dying and broken
Why do I see nothing but suffering?

"God, I'm asking could this be Your plan?
Sin has taken hold of this whole land
Will You not say anything else to me?"

He said, 
"Where were you the day that I measured
Sunk the base and stretched the line over
All the earth and carved out its cornerstone?

"Where were you the day that I spoke and
Told the sun to split the night open
Called the morning dawn with its light to show?

"Who shut in the ocean with stone doors
Marked the reach of tides on those new shores
On the day the waves rose and first broke forth?

"Have you seen the springs of that great sea
Walked the caverns carved in the black deep
Through the gates of darkness there on its floor?

"Have you seen the armory I hold
Snow and hail are stacked up in silos
For the times of trouble and war and strife?

"Can you raise your voice to the storm cloud?
Would the thunder answer and ring out?
Does the lightning ask you where it should strike?

"Who has cleft a channel for torrents
Rain to sprout the desert with forests
In the wilderness that My hand has filled?

"Can you hunt the prey for young lions?
Can you loose the cords of Orion?
Is this whole world bending beneath your will?"

I spoke of things I did not understand
Things too wonderful for me
Although I had no right to ask
My God knelt and answered me.
