About the song
My mother is faced with the likelihood of cancer, after being clear for over 11 years. I wrote this for her. The title and much of the content is drawn from Romans 8.
Lyrics
GROANING
copyright 2005 by Tim Gallant

the things that you are facing
are things you've faced before
but still the apprehension
is something you can't ignore

I'm watching as your tears fall
I know cause they are mine
it's hard not to be fearful
we're running out of time

so all creation's groaning
and we are groaning too
awaiting the adoption
when we'll be ever new
we don't know what to pray for
some times not sure we can
thank God He gives His Spirit
who groans on our behalf

how long must we groan
and how long must we cry
how long it goes on
all these questions why

but it all works together
for those who love the Lord
He's given Jesus freely
of this we are assured
so who can separate us
from God the Father's love
not demons and not angels
things below or things above

but how long must we groan...

we're seeking and we're crying
we're living and we're dying
struggling with a world
we can't quite comprehend
we're aching and we're groaning
(in these earthen vessels)
we're praying for our homeland
struggling with the Lord
but we are not abandoned

so who can separate us
from God the Father's love
not demons and not angels
things below or things above
