Lord, answer now my one request
And grant my heartís desire
You know that I must have this thing
For it burns me like a fire.
His silence echoes in my ear
As it shouts down from the skies
That holy stillness tears my heart
And seems to mock my cries.
Well, I shall storm those heavenly gates!
Iíll fall down on my knees,
And never give the Almighty rest
ĎTill He answer all my pleas.
Oh, wordless answer, what is this?
Such strange, divine reply!
Does He not see my heart is torn,
My soul is parched and dry?
I lift my bitter anger up
To the Sovereign on His throne
I shout at Him that He has said,
ďIf you have faith it shall be done.Ē
The Silent One then raises up
And takes His pruning shears
He cuts away at my desire
Despite my pain and tears.
I look at what Heís done, and weep
Iíve been chastened, raw and bare
I know I must surrender now
And trust my Fatherís care.
He takes me in His tender arms
And draws me to His breast
He tells me just to trust and wait
For He knows what is best.
I finally yield my all to Him
And trust His perfect way
For He sits at the Potterís wheel
To perfect this lump of clay.
