I Wait

I open my eyes
I look at the time
The alarm still ringing in my ears
Drag myself from sleep
Fall down to my knees
To remember that Youíre always here
Oh, God be near

As I wait for the day
When I can finally see Your face
Oh and You know itís true
Lord, thereís nothing that I want but You
So I pray and live by Your grace
And every day, I wait

You call out to me
Your love sets me free
And in this moment everything is clear
With Your hand in mine
What more could I find
Than hands that wipe away all my tears
And holds me near

As I wait for the day
When I can finally see Your face
Oh and You know itís true
Lord, thereís nothing that I want but You
So I pray and live by Your grace
And every day, I wait

You know I love Your presence
Here in our secret place
But You know that deep inside my heart
Everything in me aches
So hold me close
Whisper to my soul
That itís sooner than I hope
And You will never let me go

As I wait for the day
When I can finally see Your face
Oh and You know itís true
Lord, thereís nothing that I want but You
So I pray and live by Your grace
And every day, I wait

Lovely writing. I have often said that, waiting is not a passive action, but an active passion. As we do the work that must be done while we wait upon the Lord. Bless You.
