How Can You Really Care

Post by fishrlayd » Tue Nov 28, 2006 1:04 am

I'm looking for the words to a church hymn we used to sing during the 1970's. All I can remember is the first verse that goes something like this...

How can you really care with fury everywhere, I look for help but I can only see a wall. I turn to see the sun, but he is on the run, just like the stars at night, my heart is going to fall. I am alone, I may be crying, but He is always there. I yell God, where are you, oh where can you be, but I know after all is said and done that my God has known me from before all time and I'll see His face.

Thanks for your help. May God bless you!

Hi Fishrlayd,

Here's what I could find:

1.
How can you really care with fury everywhere?
I look for help but I can only see a wall
I turn to see the sun, but he is on the run
Just like the stars at night, my heart is going to fall.

2.
Come now and rescue me, alone on a heavy sea
If I should perish now, no one would even know
I lie awake at night and all I know is fright
And do you care if I am dying down below?

3.
Some people come along and say that I was wrong
To put my trust in you, for you don't even see
But I have known a year when you were very near
I felt your hand upon me, come to set me free.

Chorus
I am alone, I may be crying
But He's always there
I yell, God, where are you?
O where can you be?
But I know after all is said and done
That my God has know me from before all time
And I'll see his face.

Hope this is it. God bless!
Steve

I knew the exact same words and had also been looking for the rest of the song from about 30 years ago when we used to sing it in Guyana, South America. Thank You.

I've been looking for it too, for about thirty years. It was sung by Jesuit brothers in Phoenix. Let's hear it for the internet!

Thank you for this, I used to sing this at school in the 70's, and I have been looking for it to teach my grandaughter.

Thank you for the lyrics. This song was on an album made in Trinidad & Tobago during the early 1970's. I think it was by the Goretti Group only.

It was not on the "Sing Our My Soul" album made by the Holy Name Convent Choir, Dixieland Steel Orchestra & The Goretti Group also in the early 1970's


I cannot find that album anywhere though.

Great memories of my childhood.

Thank you so much.

This song was written by Jesuit Paul Quinlan and recorded on the album, "It's a Brand New Day" in 1969. It was very popular in the late '60s and early '70s - especially among the college crowd.

Does anyone know all the lyrics to "It's a Brand New Day"? I can only remember the first verse.
