Does God Still Get The Blues?

This song is by Don Francisco and appears on the album Come Away (1992).

Way back in the beginning
Long before God gave the law
He looked down on us from heaven
Sin was all He saw

Cause everyone was evil
The whole race had gone insane
The Bible says it grieved Him
And His heart was filled with pain

Before Jesus raised up Lazarus
When all his friends were standin' 'round
Jesus hurt inside so badly
When all the tears were comin' down

Lookin' out over Jerusalem
Was just days before He died
The pain kept gettin' deeper
Until He broke down and cried

And sometimes I wonder
When I think of all the sin we choose
He looks down on all this twisted world
Does God still get the blues?

Even when we break His heart
I believe He keeps it to Himself
He knows most of us are so full o' guilt
He won't add on somethin' else

He just keeps on, keeps on givin'
All His blessings from above
Waiting for the moment
We'll return some of His love

And sometimes I wonder
(Ooh, sometimes I wonder)
Think of all the gifts we refuse
(Ooh, sometimes I wonder)
When He looked down on us from heaven
Does God still get the blues?
(Does God still get the blues?)

Jesus gave His life, His word and His name
To me and you
Restin' in the Holy Spirit
Is really that we need to do

But instead we prefer our traditions
And we all tell Him that He lied
And we claim Him for our misery
Our blindness and our pride

And sometimes I wonder
(Ooh, sometimes I wonder)
When I see, I see the God-less lives we choose
Just how much we grieve the Spirit
Does God still get the blues?
(Does God still get the blues?)

And sometimes I wonder
(Ooh, don't ya wonder?)
When I see the lives of the abused
(Ooh, don't ya wonder?)
Just how much we grieved His Holy Spirit
Does God still get the blues?
(Does God still get the blues?)
