Your Patience

I followed You so close for a while.
I trusted beyond a shadow of a doubt as a child.
But one day I turned away,
determined to make it on my own.
You stepped aside and let me try.

Lord,
I want to thank you for Your patience with me.
Thank you for waiting so quietly.
When You could have left me behind
You stayed in the shadow by my side.

Who else would have stayed so long?
Who else would have put up with all my wrong?
The pain I must have caused Your heart,
the way I tried to shut You in the dark...
but Your light came shining through!

Lord,
I need to thank you for Your patience with me.
Thank you for waiting so quietly.
When You could have left me behind
You stayed in the shadow by my side.

Lord,
I saw my sin.
I turned to You again and You took me back.
Jesus, You took me back-no questions asked.
Your glorious light came rushing like a flood
and You embraced me in Your arms of never ending love!

And
I want to thank you for Your patience with me.
Thank you for waiting so quietly.
When You could have left me behind
You stood in the shadow by my side
and You waited for me.

A lovely poem and so very true.

This is awesome! I definitely see distinct verses and choruses here. It makes me wish I knew just how the chorus sounds. I could be wrong, but this strikes me as a slower, more beautiful peice. A style I've just recently begum wading into. The message is scripturally sound, and very, very relevant to me in my life.
