Tell Him Where It Hurts

Whoever said church was boring must have never gone to Victory Christian Fellowship. This morning I was given the opportunity to sing ala-Juris of M.Y.M.P. when the worship team sang our version of “Tell Me Where It Hurts.”

Having only practised the song once (at 9:30 PM last night!) I proceeded to mangle the lyrics. I kept on reverting to the original version, which I have been singing since it first came out in the 90s. I asked worship leader Me-anne, if I could be excused from the performance, but she gave me a stern look and told me, “Kaya mo yan!”

I am glad I didn’t back out. I don’t know, though, if the congregation felt the same way! Not only did I feel like a pop artist for 4 good minutes, I felt Jesus speak to me as I was singing the song, which Me-anne re-wrote to fit the Sunday crowd.

Here’s what I remember from the song. Come sing it with me:

I

Why is that sad look in your eyes, why are you crying

Tell Me now, tell Me now, tell Me why you’re feeling this way

I hate to see you so down, please tell Me

Is it your life, you think you’re getting nowhere

Being so far from what is meant for you

There’s so many things that I can do

Chorus:

Why don’t you tell Me where it hurts now tell Me

And I’ll give the best, not just any other

Yes, I’ll do My best to make the tears all go away

Just tell Me where it hurts now tell Me

‘Cause I love you with a love so tender

And If you let me stay, I’ll love all of the hurt away

II

Lest you compare your life with another

Don’t be sad, don’t feel bad

‘Cause I have greater plans for you

You may think that I am too cold or silent

Open your eyes as I put back all the pieces

Of your broken heart

Making all things new

There’s so many things that I can do

(Repeat Chorus)

“God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them.”-Hebrews 6:10
