Wait for the Lord (Psalm 37:34; NIV).
1. I wait in silence,
Ready to share your joy.
2. I wait in stillness,
Ready to share your life.
3. I wait, alone, Lord,
Ready to share your dread.
4. I wait in darkness,
Ready to share your light.

Being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground (Luke 22:44; NIV).
If we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering (Romans 8:17; NLT).
