Waiting

The Lord must wait for you to come to him
so he can show you his love and compassion (Isaiah 30:18; NLT).

Keep on seeking and you will find (Luke 11:9; NLT). 

1. Your sacred lamp
Burns low in us,
Just waiting to be seen;

2. Your blissful peace
Endures in us,
Though trouble reigns supreme.

3. Your joyous truth
Survives in us,
Just waiting to be known;

4. Your perfect love
Stands by in us
To change our hearts of stone.

5. Your glowing embers
Stir in us,
Just waiting to ignite;

6. Your precious Son
Remains in us
To guide, and to delight.

7. Your Holy Ghost
Marks time in us,
Just waiting to appear;

8. Your still, small voice
Sighs in us, Lord –
If only we would hear.
