The Simple Life

How Long Lord?


How long oh Lord,

Till my heart is whole

My prayer is heard

My joy is renewed

=========

How long oh Lord,

Till the pain subsides

The darkness lifts

Hope begins to rise

=========

How long oh Lord,

Till the people respond

The situation resolves

The redemption begins

=========

How long oh Lord,

Till I no longer yearn

I no longer wail

I receive satisfaction

=========

How long oh Lord, because

My mind is racing

My hear is bleeding

My spirit is longing

=========

How long Papa,

My strength is flagging

My prayers are struggling

My faith is fading

=========

How long Papa,

My grip is loosening

My hold is breaking

My desire is weakening

=========

How long Papa,

It feels like I am leaning on air

Walking in the dark

Hitting obstacles

=========

It feels like

I am carrying the weight of the world

Dragging a ship behind me

Crushed by a mountain

=========

It feels like

I am walking barefoot on glass

Pounded by hailstones

Freezing in mountain snow

=========

It feels like

I am walking on hot coals

Burning in the fire

Bound to a furnace

=========

How long Papa

Till You come for me

You send relief

You dent the path

=========

How long Papa

Till I hear Your voice

Know Your embrace

Heal in Your arms

=========

How long Papa

Till Your peace is mine

Your joy is my strength

Your grace is sufficient

=========

How long Papa

Till my feet are steady

My hope is unmovable

My life is a tapestry

My atmosphere is Yours

My assignment is on track

My story is true to You

How long Papa? How long?

===========
