Wait for the Lord (Psalm 37:34; NIV).

I long for the Lord more than sentries long for the dawn
(Psalm 130:6; NLT).

1. I wait in silence,
Longing to hear your voice.

2. I wait in stillness,
Longing to share your life.

3. I wait, alone, Lord,
Longing to take your hand.

4. I wait in darkness,
Longing to see your light.
