Oh God, I am only a humble physician.
Without you, I know I can do nothing, so I take this humble position.
As I humble myself to you in prayer,
I just have to ask, "How much do you care?"
I mean, I need reassurance. Do you hear me? Are you there?
I see so many problems each and every day.
My patients suffer, and I desperately pray.
Sometimes you heal them, and they go there way.
But sometimes, they die: and what do I say?
I've been a physician for many long years.
I have comforted many families, through many tears.
I have sat by bedsides through many fears.
I keep telling them, when they pray, someone hears!
But, Lord, I need reassurance, that this is so.
Lord, I really, really need to know!
What about AIDS? What about cancer?
Is there a cure? God, what is your answer?
Then I heard the Lord speak, so soft and so clear.
I knew some how that he was near.
He said, Yes my child, I care about cancer.
Yes, my child, I sent you my answer.
Yes, my child, I do hear you when you pray.
But, you see, you aborted my answer, yesterday!
