Be Small Enough

Though I’m not really a fan of contemporary Christian music, I really like this song. Just listen to it. It’s amazing.

Be Small Enough, by Nicole Nordeman

Oh, great God, be small enough to hear me now
There were times when I was crying
From the dark of Daniel’s den
And I have asked you once or twice
If you would part the sea again
But tonight I do not need a fiery pillar in the sky
Just wanna know you’re gonna hold me if I start to cry
Oh, great God, be small enough to hear me now

Oh, great God, be close enough to feel you now
There have been moments when I could not
Face Goliath on my own
And how could I forget we’ve marched around
Our share of Jerichos
But I will not be setting out a fleece for you tonight
Just wanna know that everything will be alright
Oh, great God, be close enough to feel you now

All praise and all honor be
To the God of ancient mysteries
Whose every sign and wonder turn the pages of our history
But tonight my heart is heavy
And I cannot keep from whispering this prayer
“Are you there?”

And I know you could leave writing on the wall
That’s just for me
Or send wisdom while I’m sleeping,
Like in Solomon’s sweet dreams
But I don’t need the strength of Samson
Or a chariot in the end
Just want to know that you still know how many hairs
Are on my head
Oh, great God, be small enough to hear me now
