In honor of the shooting victims at the Tree of Life synagogue, and for the strength and comfort of their families and the surrounding community of Squirrel Hill in Pittsburgh, here's a song called "Weep With Me" by Rend Collective.

For those of you who may not know, Rend Collective is a Christian creative folk/rock band from Northern Ireland, and the song "Weep With Me" is a song of lament written shortly after a bombing in Manchester in spring 2017. Video and lyrics are below.

Weep with me Lord will You weep with me? I don't need answers, all I need Is to know that You care for me Hear my plea Are You even listening? Lord I will wrestle with Your heart But I won't let You go

You know I believe Help my unbelief

Yet I will praise You Yet I will sing of Your name Here in the shadows I'll light up an offering of praise What was true in the light Is still true in the dark You're good and You're kind And You care for this heart Lord I believe That You weep with me

Part the seas Lord make a way for me Here in the midst of my lament I have faith, yes I still believe That You love me Your plans are to prosper me And You're working everything for good Even when I can't see it

Oh I believe that You care Oh I love You Lord You hear the cries of the oppressed and the broken hearted

Turn my lament into a love song Transform me And Turn my lament into an anthem Oh I need You now, I need You now Turn my lament into a love song Oh raise it up, raise it up Turn my lament into an anthem
