​Job's Defiance

This song is by Don Francisco and appears on the album Genesis & Job (1994).

You, my friends, are all my scorners
And it seems your words of wind will have no end
While my adversary charges
Like a monster with its teeth he tear and rends
My face is streaked with weeping
And the darkness of my death is on my eyes
Like a prey I've fled and fallen
In the dust I crawl and have no strength to rise

If I've turned my steps to vanity
Or spoken in deceit the words of sin
I would be the first to tell you
And agree that I deserve this pain I'm in
But of sin I am not guilty
And the prayer from deep within my heart is pure
And for as long as life is in me
I will hold that my integrity is sure

I have sensed His sound and shadow
But I turn and look and He's no longer there
In futility I have sought Him
If you know the place He's hiding, tell me where
For if I could only find Him
I would bring my case for justice to His throne
I would lay it all before Him
And my righteousness would once for all be known

I'd demand the whole indictment
I would wear it like a crown before His face
Like a prince I would approach Him
And declare that my accuser has no case
And I call the earth to witness
Cover not by blood until God hears my cry
Let this wrong be still remembered
Till at last there is an answer from on high

Let this wrong be still remembered
Till at last there is an answer from on high
