Talk To Me

A man knelt down to say a prayer
and said, “God, please talk to me.
I’m lonely and I need a friend.
Oh, won’t you hear my plea.”
Then up above in a willow tree
a bird began to sing,
but the man wasn’t listening,
he didn’t hear a thing.

He tried again with another prayer
and raised his voice and cried,
“Oh, God! Won’t you talk to me!
I’m at the end this time.”
Then across the sky the thunder rolled
and made the heavens ring,
but the man wasn’t listening,
he didn’t hear a thing.

“God, show me a miracle!”
Let me know you’re here!”,
but he was too blind to see
a star shine bright and clear.
“Touch me, God, and let me see you
let me know you care”,
but he brushed away the butterfly
that was the answer to his prayer.

If he would only listen
he’d hear his Master speak.
If he would open up his eyes
then he would surely see
that our Father’s there to hear our prayers
and take away our fears.
I know because He’s with me now,
He’s wiped away my tears.

“God, show me a miracle!
Let me know you’re here!”,
and a new life was born,
bringing joy and cheer.
“Touch me, God, and let me see you,
Let me know you care.”
An answer to a fervent prayer
was what was needed here.

I just felt the softest touch
and heard a whisper in my ear.
And I felt a tug inside my heart
they came through loud and clear.
I know now they’re my Father’s way
to let me know and see
that he has time to hear my prayers
He wants to talk to me.
