Hosea Rock Opera, song 2

Hosea has been given the unenviable task of marrying a prostitute to symbolize the relationship that God sees between Himself and His people.  Hosea is not thrilled, but he is doing as asked.  Tonight he is walking the streets of his town looking for the woman whom he must marry.  Song is to be sung in a Mark Knopfler sound.

God told me to look for her, out where there is pain.

Where good people don’t go, at least that’s what they claim.

I’ll know when I find her, the sum of my fears.

The girl God has made for me, my harvest of tears.

Why has it come to this, this thing I must do?

And why have we fallen so far, from the plan made by You?

At first I just thought of my pain, from what you want me to do.

But now I know it’s just a bit, of the pain felt by you.

Of the pain felt by you.

I’ve walked through the dark streets, I’ve looked in the bars.

Sad women in costumes, pimps watching from cars.

They both are just wreckage, of what once was a life.

But none of these women, will become my wife.

Will become my wife.

Why has it come to this, this thing I must do?

And why have we fallen so far, from the plan made by You?

At first I just thought of my pain, from what you want me to do.

But now I know it’s just a bit, of the pain felt by You.

Of the pain felt by You.

I’vel been walking these streets all night, gonna get in my car.

Looked in eery dark corner, looked near and looked far.

I think that I’m done for the night, and that’s music I hear.

I think I’ll stop in at that bar, and have me a beer.

Yes I think I’ll stop in at that bar, and have me a beer.

Why has it come to this, this thing I must do?

And why have we fallen so far, from the plan made by You?

At first I just thought of my pain, from what you want me to do.

But now I know it’s just a bit, of the pain felt by You.

Of the pain felt by you.
