You who live in heaven
hear the prayers of those of us who live on earth
Who are afraid of being left by those we love and
who get hardened by the hurt
Do you remember when you lived down here where we all scrape
To find the faith to ask for daily bread
Did you forget about us after you had flown away
Well I memorized every word you said
Still I'm so scared I'm holding my breath
While you're up there just playing hard to get

You who live in radiance
Hear the prayers of those of us who live in skin
We have a love that's not as patient as yours was
But still we do love now and then
Did you ever know lonliness, did you ever know need
Did you remember just long a night can get
When you are barely holding on and your friends fall asleep
And don't see the blood that's running in your sweat
Will those who mourn be left uncomforted
While you're up there just playing hard to get.

I know you bore our sorrows
I know you feel our pain
I know that it would not hurt any less
Even if it could be explained
I know that I am only lashing out at the one who loves me most
And after I have figured this
Somehow all I really need to know is if

You who live in eternity hear
the prayers of those of us who live in time
We cannot see what's ahead and we cannot get free
of what we've left behind
I'm reeling from all these voices that keep screaming in my ears
All these words of shame and doubt, blame and regret
I can't see how you're leading me unless you've let me here
Where I'm lost enough to let myself be led
And so you've been here all along I guess
It's just your way and you are just plain hard to get.

--Rich Mullins "Hard to Get"

Wish I could take the credit. . .

That song was actually never recorded in the studio by Rich. He died in a car wreck about a week or so after he sang it on a demo recording. His "last" CD, entitled "The Jesus Record", has the nine demos he did just before his death (including "Hard to Get") and studio recordings of the same songs by his bandmates and other recording artists. Despite the poor sound quality, I prefer the demos with Rich himself singing. A song like "Hard to Get" is especially poignant with just Rich and his guitar singing into a $19.95 K-mart tape recorder. Gets me everytime. . .
