In Waiting, I Wait
My eyes for You linger past the dipping sun
And heart excites within my breast…
For the thrill of ages to come beside You.
Transfixed I look beyond my sight
E’en though the fading light
Grows dimmer with each passing minute
I know I know… Your beauty I’ll see
And then the promise lives within it!
Keeping the Faith, running the course
And blood rushes within my veins…
Remembering the battles we have fought together.
Memories of epics unfold
E’en though those stories told
Of men’s passions in their day
I know I know… Your glory I’ll see
And then the power’s here to stay!
The trumpet blast will soon be heard
And bones quicken within my frame…
As earth shudders with groanings of birth.
Oh! How I hunger for Love and Truth sublime
E’en though my will is set and time
Will tell of works done best
I know I know… Your face I’ll see
And then with patience I will rest!
