last night i was given tickets to a Michael Card & Phil Keaggy concert. it was amazing. the best part was when MC said he had a gift for us - his favorite song of the over 420 he has written. he said that he - like many others - has a hard time with the expectations of entering into the happiness and joy that are presumed to be part of the Christmas season. this song is for the wounded and sorrowful:

Come Lift Up Your Sorrows
by Michael Card

If you are wounded, if you are alone,
If you are angry, if your heart is cold as stone,
If you have fallen and if you are weak,
Come find the worth of God
That only the suffering seek.

(Chorus)
Come lift up your sorrows
And offer your pain;
Come make a sacrifice
Of all your shame;
There in your wilderness
He's waiting for you
To worship Him with your wounds,
For He's wounded too.

He has not stuttered, and He has not lied
When He said, "Come unto me, you're not disqualified"
When your heavy laden, you may want to depart,
But those who know sorrow are closest to His heart.

In this most Holy Place
He's made a sacred space
For those who will enter in
And trust to cry out to Him;
You'll find no curtain there,
No reason left for fear;
There's perfect freedom here
To weep every unwept tear.
